Welcome to the San Francisco Unified School District's Exercise Toolkit!  The following website has been designed to provide the schools of the San Francisco Unified School District the tools and resources that are necessary to plan and execute organized and productive exercises.  These exercises will test the SFUSD School Site Emergency Plan and provide confidence and knowledge to your staff, students, and other SFUSD stakeholders.  Exercises are no-fault and are therefore meant to test policies, procedures and equipment, not people.
 
Most of the information on this website comes directly out of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP).  HSEEP stresses that the success of individual exercises relies on the execution of five distinct phases, which are collectively known as the exercise cycle.  The exercise cycle moves in a linear manner through foundation, design and development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning (Homeland Security.  February, 2007.  Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program:  Volume 1:  HSEEP Overview and Exercise Program Management)
 
Below you will find four scenarios to test: Parent/Child Reunification, Earthquake, Shelter-in-place, and Active Shooter.  Under each scenario, you will find two types of exercises:
 
Tabletop Exercise:  The first type of exercise is discussion-based, and is known as a Tabletop Exercise (TTX).  A Tabletop Exercise involves key personnel discussing hypothetical scenarios in an informal setting.   (Homeland Security.  February, 2007.  Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program:  Volume 1:  HSEEP Overview and Exercise Program Management)
 
Drill:  The second type of exercise presented is an operations-based exercise known as a Drill.  A Drill is a coordinated, supervised activity usually employed to validate a single, specific operation or function in a single agency or organizational entity.  (Homeland Security.  February, 2007.  Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program:  Volume 1:  HSEEP Overview and Exercise Program Management).  Before you conduct a Drill, you should conduct a Tabletop Exercise associated with that specific scenario. 
 
Click on the links below to go through and complete the steps to develop either exercise.   Please adhere to the steps, as they will make planning, exercise conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning more complete and manageable.
 
Thank you and enjoy!
