Registrations are closed for this event

This Workshop will be an introduction to the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program, also known as “HSEEP.” This is the Federal standard for designing and conducting exercises. The Workshop will consist of the following components:

  • The Healthcare Coalition’s role in supporting emergency preparedness activities for its members, and how LTC facilities fit into that role. (Approximately 10 minutes)
  • Introduction to HSEEP, including an overview of each of the six major types of exercises, their purposes and differences, and how each is planned and conducted. We will place special emphasis on Tabletop and Full Scale Exercises since these are of most immediate concern for LTC facilities in the Knox/East Regions. (Approximately 90 minutes.)
  • Presentation and review of a customized HSEEP Tabletop Exercise template and instruction document that will assist LTC facilities with designing and conducting internal Tabletop exercises. (Approximately 75 minutes.)

At the conclusion of the Workshop, participants will have had some level of instruction in the characteristics and planning considerations for each type of exercise, and specific instruction in the planning and conduct of the two types of exercises in which they will participate during the 2017 calendar year. Each participant will also receive hard copies of the template and instructions, and will be provided with electronic versions on request.
