ONX System exercises are designed to meet recipient requirements of Emergency Management Performance Grants (EMPG).
Access a copy of EMPG Grant Programs Directorate Information Bulletin # 366 dated July 7, 2011.
ONX System exercises utilize the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) for exercise design, conduct and evaluation.
HSEEP compliant Exercise Evaluation Guides (EEG) are utilized to assess the various disaster planning, preparedness, response and recovery core capabilities.
After Action Report
Immediately following the conclusion of an exercise participants submit their Hotwash and evaluators submit their Exercise Evaluation Guide (EEG) observations and recommendations directly into the ONX System. Once this evaluation information has been submitted an After Action Report (AAR) is exported from the ONX System.
This report contains observations and recommendations submitted by individual exercise participants via their Hotwash and the evaluator’s Exercise Evaluation Guide (EEG).
The purpose of this report is to analyze exercise results, identify strengths to be maintained and built upon, identify potential areas for further improvement and support development of corrective actions.
Inject Response Report
This report contains the inject responses from exercise participants.
These responses are unedited and are directly exported from the information participants typed into the ONX System during the exercise.
The purpose of this report is to provide exercise participants with documentation of the decisions made during the exercise.

Caduceus Shield exercises for Public Health are designed to meet the Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) goals and objectives.
PPHR is a criteria-based Public Health preparedness program that assesses local health department capacity and capability to plan for, respond to and recover from public health emergencies. PPHR aims to protect the public’s health and increase the public health infrastructure by equipping local health departments with sustainable tools to plan, train and exercise using a continuous improvement model.
Public Health Preparedness Capabilities provides a guide that state and local health departments can use to better organize their work, plan their priorities, and decide which capabilities they have the resources to build or sustain. The capabilities also help ensure that Federal preparedness funds are directed to priority areas within individual health departments.
