Maryland-National Capital Region’s Training and Exercise Plan
In June 2015 CHHS completed a multi-year Training and Exercise Plan (TEP) for the Maryland-National Capital Region Emergency Response System (MDERS). The TEP focuses on developing multi-disciplinary and/or multi-jurisdictional response capabilities for critical incidents, while documenting the overall regional training and exercise program goals from July 2015 to May 2017.
The TEP was developed in consultation with the Training and Exercise Work Group (TEPW), which identified the training and exercise needs of the Maryland-National Capital Region. The TEPW includes stakeholders from various disciplines in both Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, including: fire, rescue, and emergency medical services; law enforcement; emergency management; public health; and healthcare systems. The Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) are also partners in the TEPW.
