Training & Exercise

Training and exercise is a vital component to providing emergency response agencies and their communities improved public safety and preparedness capabilities. The Idaho Office of Emergency Management (IOEM) enhances the emergency preparedness of Idaho’s communities through the sustainment of a comprehensive, all-hazard training and exercise program.

A comprehensive training and exercise program improves operational readiness, reveals planning gaps and resource limitations, improves coordination, clarifies roles and responsibilities, improves individual performance, and gains public recognition of the emergency services programs.
