The NETEC, as part of its ongoing collaboration with ASPR and CDC, has developed a comprehensive suite of Ebola exercise resources that is now entirely updated and available at http://netec.org/exercise-materials/.
Fully compliant with the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) - the national standard for emergency management exercises - NETEC’s exercise resources are based on its first year of experiences, direct feedback from attendees at the NETEC Annual Summit at Emory University Hospital in May, and numerous calls with awardees.
The templates provide a standardized means to assess and improve readiness for managing Ebola incidents and, of note, each now maps directly to ASPR’s 2015 Ebola Preparedness Measures, ensuring that end-users can easily conduct exercises that test specific, measurable aspects of their work.
Further, the website is now intuitively organized to reflect four types of exercise end-users: Assessment Hospitals; State-Designated Ebola Treatment Centers; Regional Ebola and Special Pathogen Treatment Centers (RESPTCs); and Health Care Coalitions. Each of the four groups now has HSEEP-compliant discussion - (e.g., tabletop) and operations-(e.g., full-scale) based exercise templates available for use.
