About the Governor's EPPI

Since 2012, The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP), Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) has conducted an annual statewide exercise in order to prepare the state and its one-hundred and sixty-nine municipalities and two tribal nations for natural and man made disasters. Yearly, DEMHS develops a disaster scenario that is used by state agencies and local/tribal governments to exercise their emergency plans including the State Response Framework, Regional Emergency Support Plans and Local Emergency Operations Plans. Local, tribal, State and private-non profit stakeholders may be requested to participate in this yearly exercise in order prepare Connecticut for a variety of hazard situations.
