Exercise Starter Kits for the 2023-2026. Wednesday, Jan. 31, noon to 1:00 p.m. ET and Tuesday, Feb. 13, 9 to 10 a.m. ET


FEMA National Exercise Division developed 10 new Exercise Starter Kits for the 2023-2026 National Exercise Program Principals’ Exercise Priorities. The new kits are now available in the Emergency Management Toolkit section of the Preparedness Toolkit. This online portal provides the whole community with tools for implementing the National Preparedness System.


Each kit contains a sample exercise facilitator and evaluator guide, sample conduct slides, a sample situation manual and a customizable placemat.


These documents are intended to be used by exercise practitioners and emergency managers at all levels of government, the private sector and nonprofit organizations. By providing these materials, FEMA hopes to engage planners who may need more time to develop their own exercises fully.


FEMA will host a series of webinars to discuss the new kits. All webinars will offer the same content. There is no registration required to attend one of the webinars. Join during one of the times listed below using this Adobe Connect link.

  • Wednesday, Jan. 31, noon to 1:00 p.m. ET.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 13, 9 to 10 a.m. ET

If you are unable to attend one of the webinars listed above, a recorded version of the webinar will be available on the Preparedness Toolkit HSEEP Webinars page starting the first week of February.


The available exercise starter kits will include the following:

  • Climate resilience.
  • Climate adaptation.
  • Complex incident coordination.
  • Large-scale population movement and resettlement.
  • Mitigating social isolation and loneliness.
  • Community preparedness and response to the opioid crisis.
