Exercises - State Exercise Coordination Committee

The mission of the Disaster Preparedness Commission's State Exercise Coordination Committee, co-chaired by the New York State Office of Emergency Management and the New York State Office of Counter Terrorism, is to coordinate statewide exercise initiatives, and to support agencies, organizations, and jurisdictions in the objective assessment of their capabilities through a comprehensive exercise program and strategy. The Exercise Coordination Committee and member agencies also engage in other large-scale exercise efforts.

As the State's multi-year Training and Exercise Plan evolves, and is updated each year, opportunities will be identified for the annual EMPIRE exercise and other significant exercise activities that will enhance preparedness in the Empire State.
