Jumping In (To The Port) Head First

Planning and Conduct of Maritime Security Exercise

Last week, there was the opportunity to participate in a planning session for a country level full scale exercise that will be held in December at the port.

When conducting an exercise, it is important not to jump right in and conduct a full scale exercise. There are other things that should be done along the way, including having memorandums of understanding (MOUs) in place, as well as, other forms of exercises.

A list of HSEEP Exercise Types can be found at:

In addition, it is important with the transition to the Incident Command System (ICS), that all of those who are involved in the exercise are also fully aware and trained in ICS.
