FEMA releases new Exercise Starter Kits

FEMA’s National Exercise Division released new Exercise Starter Kits to provide tools for state, local, tribal, territorial, non-governmental, and private sector partners to conduct tabletop exercises. The new Exercise Starter Kits contain a situation manual, facilitator guide and briefing slides with scene-setting videos. Each kit includes sample scenarios and discussion questions that can be tailored to specific threats, as well as jurisdiction or organization specific resources, operational plans, and procedures to support desired exercise objectives.

The kits are structured around scenario modules to support a four to six-hour tabletop exercise for four to 50 participants. The Exercise Starter Kits are available online and require an approved Preptoolkit account. Stakeholders can register by creating a username and password for system access. For more information on how to register, review the Preparedness Toolkit User Guide and select Registration and Sign-In.
