2018 Exercise Document Shortcut

This year the 2018 Statewide Medical and Health Exercise (SWMHE) will take place during the third week of November (11/13/18 - 11/16/18, 11/12/18 is an observed holiday).

The SWMHE Program consists of objective driven exercise templates and generic exercise templates to assist jurisdictions, organizations and facilities participate in the yearly exercise. The program utilizes the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) and aligns with Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP)/Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) grant requirements.

The SWMHE Program is customizable to fit the needs of any organization, jurisdiction or facility. You can change the scenario, exercise date, objectives, or any other details to fit your needs.

You are welcome to dive into the templates offered for this year’s exercise, including: discipline-specific Objectives, Scenario, Exercise Plan, and many more.  All files are designed to be intuitive, exhaustive, and easy to customize.

A Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plan (MYTEP) has also been developed for the SWMHE Program. The MYTEP details suggested capabilities, scenarios, and focus regions for future years.
