The State of Georgia Crisis Care Response Plan Exercise Program is a state-wide exercise that will be designed and implemented using the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) model. The goal of the program is to test the drafted Georgia Crisis Care Response Plan, identify any planning gaps that may exist, and generate an after-action report and improvement plan that will guide plan updates.

Additionally, this program gives Georgia healthcare coalitions an opportunity to learn (or get a refresher) on the HSEEP planning process. The program will be going through all phases of the HSEEP model for tabletop exercises and will be delivering presentations and providing guidance for how to replicate the HSEEP process in healthcare coalitions.
