The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Academic Engagement (OAE) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) invite you to participate in the 2019 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education (NTTX).
Thank you for your interest in the DHS Campus Resilience Program (CR Program) Tabletop Exercise Series. The series is currently on hold until 2020 while we actively support the implementation of the Federal Commission on School Safety Report recommendations. The CR Program anticipates releasing host institution solicitations for 2020 exercises in late fall of 2019, please check back at that time for further details.
During this break in operations, we encourage you to check out the CRP Exercise Starter Kits and the CRP Resource Library for opportunities for self-guided exercises, or if you are looking for exercise support, please visit FEMA’s National Exercise Program and CISA’s Sector Outreach and Programs Division. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to working with you again next year.
