This symposium provides a review of training and exercise programs within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that are applicable to our state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) partners. The symposium also provides a forum for sharing best practices and case studies in training and exercises from the SLTT level.
