TRANSCAER® Exercise Program

Exercises enhance knowledge of plans, allow organizations to improve their own performance, and identify opportunities to improve capabilities to respond to incidents. If your exercise is going to focus on a specific commodity or mode of transportation, TRANSCAER has resources available to assist you with exercise design, delivery, and evaluation.   

Exercises help build preparedness for threats and hazards by providing a low-risk environment to do the following:

  • Test or validate procedures or plans
  • Clarify roles and responsibilities within your organization
  • Improve coordination between private and public sector organizations
  • Assess the capabilities of existing resources and identify needed resources
  • Validate training and education

TRANSCAER understands how critical exercises are for both communities and emergency responders, therefore TRANSCAER has developed several resources to assist with exercises that focus on specific commodities and/or modes of transportation.
