Emergency Preparedness Planning
National Aeronautics and Space Administration
One critical HAZMED deliverable is the NASA Headquarters Emergency Preparedness Plan. Wedesigned and conducted training drills and tabletop exercises to cover a variety of hazard and threat scenarios, developed the Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), and evaluated and validated the plan in exercises and tests.

Editorial, Technical, and Publications Support
Federal Emergency Management Agency
The Federal Response Plan (FRP) is the documentary keystone in the development of a nationwide system for all-hazard emergency response, recovery, and mitigation. HAZMED editorial, technical, and publications support enhanced and expanded the FRP and other products of FEMA and other FRP agencies.

For a national program sponsored jointly by the U.S. Army and FEMA, HAZMED developed scenarios, controller/player training, and exercise evaluation.
