FEMA’s National Exercise Program will begin accepting nominations for exercise support. Private businesses can apply for exercise support! But, don’t go at it alone. Business will want to collaborate with local, state, tribal, or federal government emergency management partners on their exercise planning team. Listen in on the webinar (link below) to learn more.
Participate in the National Exercise Program’s 2020 Fall Nomination Round
On Oct. 1, FEMA’s National Exercise Program (NEP) will begin accepting nominations from state, local, tribal, territorial and other whole community partners. The program offers no-cost assistance for exercise design, development, execution and evaluation to validate capabilities across all mission areas.
The NEP consists of a two-year cycle of exercises that culminates in a full-scale exercise known as the National Level Exercise. Nominations for exercise support are accepted twice a year. The 2020 fall nomination round will be open for sponsors to submit nominations between Oct. 1 and Nov. 1 for exercises that will be conducted in the 2021-2022 NEP cycle. Decisions will be sent by Dec. 1.
FEMA is hosting a 60-minute webinar at 2 p.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 24 to discuss the nomination process, the support that NEP can provide for conducting exercises in a COVID-19 environment and provide a preview of the proposed 2021-2022 Principals’ Strategic Priorities.
