ISC and its team assists clients to maintain a steady state of readiness and a high level of preparedness by testing plans, making certain necessary resources are available, and verifying that relevant personnel and agencies/organizations are familiar with those plans. This is accomplished by developing an effective exercise and training program based on our Planning, Education, Training, and Exercise (PETE) Model (see diagram below), which is ultimately designed to promote training for key personnel, identify areas of proficiency, and areas where improvements are needed. Most importantly, ISC will incorporate AARs and lessons learned into future revisions of operational plans, provide guidance for future trainings and exercises, develop methods to strengthen areas identified as deficient, and ensure compliance with the HSEEP and other regulatory and programmatic requirements.

As part of our sincere effort to assist our clients and their end users, the ISC Team can develop an exercise program that is consistent with existing emergency doctrine and practices and ensure compliance with HSEEP. The proposed exercise planning design will be completed through a series of steps, including, but not limited to:

  • Reviewing current documentation

  • Assessing the client’s needs and capabilities

  • Developing a cost-effective exercise strategy

  • Formulating exercise scenarios and a list of exercise specific tasks

  • Establishing a real-time exercise schedule

  • Documenting results

  • Creating AARs and analyzing reports to find lessons learned

  • Identifying areas of weakness and revising operational doctrine accordingly

  • Training staff on lessons learned

More specifically, the ISC Team is capable of providing exercise program and project management, design, and development of both discussion-based and operations-based exercises, scenarios, and MSELs. In addition, we can conduct and facilitate exercise and training, develop exercise evaluation/controller methodology plans, and exercise and actual incident AARs and lessons learned development, while maintaining relevant compliance with federal, state, and local planning requirements (i.e. Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program).
