Description:"This toolkit is intended to guide local public health agency staff in (1) developing, implementing, and evaluating emergency drills and exercises, and (2) facilitating the public health aspects of larger, multiagency emergency exercise events. The toolkit provides essential guidance including templates, checklists, and forms to assist with every stage of the exercise process. Emphasis is on identification of objectives during the planning phase, a critical step for ensuring a meaningful postexercise evaluation. The information in this document is consistent with the approaches recommended by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Office of Domestic Preparedness (ODP) and the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP)."
