Fire Drill Series 1

We have designed a initial building-block series for what may be your first HSEEP exercise execution. This series has three exercises within it: a Table Top Exercise for your Emergency Response Team, (an optional) Functional Exercise for your Emergency Response Team and finally a Functional Exercise for All Staff.


Emergency Action Team Table Top Exercise

This is the first exercise to conduct – with your Emergency Response Team members of the facility where you plan on conducting the All Staff Fire Drill Functional Exercise. You can schedule this in parallel with the C&O, IPM, MPM and FPM meetings.


Emergency Action Team Fire Drill Functional Exercise

This is the next exercise to conduct (optionally) – with your Emergency Response Team (ERT) members of the facility where you plan on conducting the All Staff Fire Drill Functional Exercise. It provides “hands-on” experience for your ERT members, based off of information they learned in the Table Top Exercise. It also better prepares them for the All Staff Fire Drill Functional Exercise. You can schedule this in parallel with the C&O, IPM, MPM and FPM meetings. The bundle includes:

  • Facilitators Guide Controller/Evaluator Handbook – ERT Fire Drill Functional Exercise ($5 Value)
  • All C&O, IPM, MPM and FPM meeting slides and speaker notes ($40 value)
  • Extent of Play Agreement – ERT Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)
  • Exercise Plan (ExPlan) for ERT Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)
  • Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) for ERT Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)
  • Exercise Evaluation Guide – ERT Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)
  • Participant Feedback Form – ERT Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)
  • After-Action Report / Improvement Plan Template – ERT Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)

All Staff Fire Drill Functional Exercise

This is the capstone fire drill exercise – to be held after the table top and (optional) functional exercises for your Emergency Response Team – this functional exercise is for all staff. It will “look and feel” like a traditional fire drill, except:

  • It is designed to use an alternate method of alerting staff – not the fire alarm.
  • It emphasizes Accountability of all staff and visitors
  • It aligns with other evacuation planning, as part of an all-hazards response plan
  • It encourages staff to follow instructions and directions of your Emergency Response Team, and aligns with the Incident Command System.

The All Staff Fire Drill Functional Exercise Bundle is the entire series of pre-filled HSEEP documents needed, and includes all of the items below:

  • Fire Drill Exercise Series Facilitator’s Guide ($5 value)
  • Facilitators Guide Controller/Evaluator Handbook – All Staff Fire Drill FNX ($5 value)
