The Bay Area Urban Areas Security Initiative

Training & Exercise

Training and exercises provide the means to test, evaluate, and enhance the proficiency of Bay Area first responders prior to a terrorist event or catastrophic disaster.

The prohibitive cost of conducting training and exercises at individual agencies, limited specialized training opportunities, and the need for multi-agency planning are commonly identified challenges to ensuring that first responders are prepared for all emergencies.

The Bay Area’s Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plan was developed to address regional goals, build towards and test against target capabilities, and promote, encourage and provide training and exercise opportunities for the emergency response workforce.
