Multi-Year Training & Exercise Plan

Background

This Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plan (MYTEP) serves as a guidance document for exercise conduct county-wide. The plan also identifies priorities for training. Through the MYTEP process efficiencies can be gained by identifying and consolidating exercises and/or trainings to break down silos among disciplines, reduce exercise costs by avoiding duplication, and prevent exercise fatigue. The MYTEP is a living document, subject to continual review and revision. The plan will be updated annually and will reflect a five-year cycle.
