PREFACE

The Maryland Emergency Preparedness Program (MEPP) is the State of Maryland's strategy for emergency preparedness and is intended to provide the State with consistent emergency planning policy information. The MEPP requires that the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) coordinate the delivery of training and exercises to facilitate the improvement in the State's ability to deliver specific capabilities for emergency operations. In order to achieve this, Maryland recently conducted six regional and one state-level Training and Exercise Planning Workshops (TEPW) and has since produced this multiyear Training and Exercise Plan (TEP).

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FEMA (DHS/FEMA) Protection and National Preparedness, Grant Programs Directorate requires that every State and Urban Area conduct a Multi-year Training and Exercise Plan Workshop (TEPW) annually.

The MEMA 2015-2016 Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plan (TEP) is the roadmap for Maryland to accomplish the training and exercise priorities described in the MEPP and Maryland's Strategic Goals and Objectives for Homeland Security1. Training and exercises play a crucial role in attaining, practicing, validating, and improving the State's capabilities.

The State's training and exercise programs are administered by MEMA in coordination with local, State, federal, and private sector partners. The training and exercise agenda described in this plan will be tracked and reported for all State-level response agencies, as well as any local response agencies receiving State homeland security funds. The plan helps prepare Maryland to optimally address both the naturally-occurring and human-caused threats and hazards that it faces.
