National Exercise Program

The National Exercise Program (NEP) is the Nation’s exercise program. This national initiative is to test, assess and improve the nation’s preparedness and resiliency. By assessing preparedness against a set of common national preparedness priorities, the Principals’ Objectives, the NEP improves preparedness and resiliency and affects policy, priorities and fiscal decisions.
