NJOHSP's Exercise Support Unit, which is within the Training and Exercise Bureau, designs a variety of discussion-based and operational exercises to address a broad range of topics related to counterterrorism, cybersecurity, resiliency, and other federal, state, and local initiatives. Utilizing FEMA's Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) guidelines, the Exercise Support Unit provides subject matter experts to assist with exercise design, development, facilitation, evaluation, and post-exercise improvement planning. Our Exercise Coordinators partner with representatives from the private sector and all levels of government to develop comprehensive regional and community exercise programs.

The Exercise Support Unit also manages and tracks all exercise activity using the Master Exercise and Training Information System, otherwise known as "METIS." METIS is a free, web-based platform accessible to any stakeholder with exercise responsibilities. Currently, the states of New Jersey and New York utilize METIS as their official exercise management program.
