TRAINING/EXERCISE PROGRAMS

FCEM&HS works to bring needed trainings to the region for emergency management professionals, first responders, public health professionals, volunteer organizations and other partners that help keep Franklin County safe before, during and after natural or man-made disasters.  FCEM&HS conducts and participates in exercises to validate the community’s readiness and response capabilities and evaluate current plans and procedures for response to a real incident regardless of the threat or hazard.

FRANKLIN COUNTY TRAINING & EXERCISE PROGRAM

The Franklin County Training and Exercise Committee (FCTEC) is coordinated by FCEM&HS and recently merged with the Chemical Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee (CEPAC) Planning, Exercise and Training Committee (PETC) to assess current training and exercise needs for our emergency partners in Franklin County.  The committee consists of representatives from the various response disciplines and meets quarterly to review current and future trainings and exercises, identify available opportunities and coordinate the scheduling and hosting of the requested training.  The combined committee holds a Training and Exercise Planning Workshop (TEPW) every year to determine current and future training and exercise needs to help sustain or improve response capabilities and combine exercises to enhance preparedness for all hazards.  
 



REGIONAL TRAINING AND EXERCISE PROGRAM


To improve the region’s ability to prevent, protect against, respond to and recover from all-hazards, FCEM&HS coordinates a Regional Training & Exercise Program. The purpose is to align county training and exercises, expand regional collaboration, and more efficiently use Federal, State and local funding and resources in order to enhance regional preparedness.

The regional program encompasses the counties in the Columbus Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) which include Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Hocking, Licking, Madison, Morrow, Perry, Pickaway, and Union.
