Multi-year Training and Exercise Plan Utah Department of Public Safety Division of Homeland Security

December 31, 2010

PREFACE

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USDHS) Preparedness Directorate's Office of Grants and Training (G&T) requires that every State and Urban Area conduct a Multi-year Training and Exercise Plan Workshop (TEPW) annually. The Utah Division of Homeland Security (HLS) conducted its 20112013 Multi-year TEPW on November 1, 2010. This was the first time HLS held a TEPW and produced this plan. This Multi-year Training and Exercise Plan (MYTEP) is the result of the analysis of the information gleaned from that TEPW and the information provided by jurisdictions. A list of TEPW participants can be found in Appendix A.

The HLS MYTEP is the roadmap for HLS and regions and counties within Utah to accomplish the priorities described in their Homeland Security Strategy. HLS has pursued a coordinated homeland security strategy that combines enhanced planning, new equipment purchases, innovative training, and realistic exercises to strengthen emergency prevention and response capabilities. Training and exercises play a crucial role in this strategy, providing a means of attaining, practicing, validating, and improving new capabilities.

The State's training and exercise programs are promoted and coordinated by HLS, in coordination with the Utah Department of Public Safety, Urban Area Security Initiatives (UASI), Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC), and Regional and county/local emergency management agencies. The training and exercise agenda described in this plan is a strategy for all State-level response agencies, as well as any municipal response agencies receiving State homeland security funds. The plan helps prepare Utah to optimally address both the natural and technical hazards that it faces.

Multi-year TEP

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Multi-year Training and Exercise Plan (MYTEP) is to provide a follow-on companion document to the Utah Homeland Security Strategy. The MYTEP is a living document that will be updated and refined annually. The MYTEP provides a roadmap for Utah to follow in accomplishing the priorities described in the Homeland Security Strategy. Each priority is linked to a corresponding National Priority. The priority is further linked to the associated target capabilities that would facilitate accomplishment of the priority and the training and exercises that will help the jurisdiction obtain those capabilities and achieve that priority.

Included in the MYTEP is the training and exercise schedule, which provides graphic illustration of the proposed activities scheduled for the years 2011-2013. It is representative of the natural progression of training and exercises that should take place in accordance with the building-block approach.
