Homeland Security Exercises and Evaluation Program

To be effective and support continual improvement, security and emergency programs must be tested. Exercises allow security emergency management personnel, from first responders to senior officials, to train and practice prevention, protection, response, and recovery capabilities in a realistic but risk-free environment. Exercises are a valuable tool for assessing and improving performance, while demonstrating community resolve to prepare for major incidents. To fulfill this need, TranSystems provides a full spectrum of drills and exercises tailored to the client’s program, level of Risk, and current training level. 

Our exercises range in complexity from tabletop exercises with small agencies to large, full-scale exercises with multi agency participation. Our exercise design teams, controllers, and evaluators have first-hand knowledge with a wide-range of clients and understand that the complexity of the exercise requires detailed planning, execution, and evaluation. Our program focuses on identifying strengths and areas for improvement , allowing weaknesses to be  corrected, and shared as appropriate prior to a real incident.

TranSystems has been planning exercises in accordance with the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) since June 2005.   Our program is a capabilities and performance-based exercise program that provides a standardized methodology and terminology for exercise design, development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning as outlined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Our programs are compliant with and complement several historical and current Federal directives and initiatives. Some of these directives and policies include the following:

  • National Strategy for Homeland Security 
  • HSPD-5, Management of Domestic Incidents 
  • HSPD-8, National Preparedness
  • National Exercise Program (NEP) 
  • National Preparedness System 
  • National Incident Management Systems (NIMS)
