Annex E: Training, Testing, Exercise

The purpose of this annex is to provide the campus community with an effective and efficient emergency response to real or threatened emergency situations by facilitating trained staff, exercised plans and tested warning systems to meet the objectives identified in the EOP and its annexes.

Concept of Operations

All functions identified in the EOP and its annexes will be subject to tests, training and exercise established under this support annex. In addition, county, state, federal, volunteers and private sector organizations will be included periodically as each are available to augment district capabilities in actual emergency situations.

Mandatory exercises will be conducted by the District on a regular basis (at least once annually per campus) at times to be determined by the Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC). The following exercise methods may be used to test the EOC, emergency operations plan effectiveness and practice emergency skills and procedures:

  • Drills
