Virginia HSEEP Susan Mongold & Aaron Kesecker April 29, 2014

2 Presentation Overview
Understand Virginia’s interpretation of the revisions to HSEEP Linking objectives from National to State to Local Involving the whole community Improvement Planning Workshop Cycle Discuss revision to Virginia’s HSEEP program Update regional/state exercise Technical assistance Focused HSEEP training Whole community and subregions Apply technology

3 Mission Statement To build and sustain the capabilities of Virginia state and local responders and their partners in all phases of Emergency Management, through a comprehensive training and exercise program.

4 Virginia Objective Linkages
The NEP uses an objectives-based planning approach in which overarching central objectives serve as the basis of the exercise program and the primary drivers of exercise development NEP uses three levels of objectives: Principal Objectives: critical, high-level functions, mission, and priorities General Objectives: operational priorities Exercise-Specific Objectives: objectives, capabilities, or event- specific actions

5 Virginia Objective Linkages
Federal Governance Virginia Governance Principle Objectives Homeland Security Council Homeland Security Committee Deputies Committee Domestic Resiliency Group Exercise and Evaluation Sub-Interagency Policy Committee Exercise Implementation Committee Exercise Specific Workgroups Secure Commonwealth Panel (Principle) Quarterly Interagency Exercise Team (General) Regional Exercise Planning Teams State Agency Exercise Planning Teams (Specific) General Obj. Ex. Specific Objective

6 Involving the Whole Community
A key tenet of the NEP is active participation from across the whole community Virginia has expanded involving community partners this through several avenues Training localities on inclusive response planning and applications On going training of instructors on VA’s population and culture diversity Customization of courses to include VA specific information on engaging whole community Including community partners in VDEM led meetings and committees Engaging community partners in exercises and activations Expanding relationships with VOAD, CERT, private sector

7 I P W Cycle Two-year NEP cycle begins with the establishment of Principal Objectives and moves through exercises Virginia interpretation was to move IPWs to a two-year cycle Current view - this frequency is not sufficient for keeping abreast of changing needs related to events and turnover Will align VDEM IPW and Grants annual meeting in 2015

8 Update Regional/State Exercise
targeted exercise levels 2 exercises x 7 regions = 14 2 state exercises = 2 2013- present targeted exercise levels 1 exercise x 7 regions = 7 7 technical assistance exercises = 7 Procured multi-vendor contract for exercises Avg = 23

9 Technical Assistance New target of 16 exercises annually however…
Technical Assistance includes Just in time HSEEP coaching Scenario database Exercise design review and assistance Evaluator training

10 Focused HSEEP Training
Developing Virginia specific training progression HSEEP Overview HSEEP Design and Evaluation Exercise Control and Simulation Course Exercise Evaluation and Improvement Planning Course Uses EMI online courses as pre-requisites Continue to encourage participation in EMI HSEEP courses and Master Exercise Program

11 Whole Community and Subregions
Goal – to expand a locality’s community footprint while keeping the exercise effective with measurable outcomes Virginia’s solutions Include community partners in exercise planning teams Identify opportunities to engage subregions of the state Provide exercise opportunities for localities in annual Virginia Emergency Response Team (state) Exercise Encourage training and exercise in preparation for specific local/regional events

12 Apply Technology After Action Report development
EEG’s done in a facilitated meeting following exercise Completed on laptops and reports submitted electronically at conclusion of meeting Eventbrite registration with phone/laptop check in process Scenario database Webinars – plan review, evaluator and controller training Use of social media simulation platform Statewide exercise calendar
