The Federal Emergency Management Agency continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings. We also continue to evaluate the local and national situation and will provide regular updates.

All Instructors for the HSEEP course are expected to have a thorough understanding of HSEEP methodology as well as direct experience in the program management, design and development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning of exercises.
