​Six ATS employees graduated from the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Course conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute (EMI) from July 13-16.

The HSEEP Course provides a comprehensive overview of emergency exercise design along with practical skill development in accordance with current HSEEP doctrine. It offers current HSEEP methodology and terminology for designing, developing, conducting and evaluating exercises to measure progress toward building, sustaining and delivering core capabilities in support of mission assurance.
The six graduates, all from the Army North Team of our Homeland Security Division, are Ethan Duck, Keva Nalls, Jean Newman-O’Neill, Rick Paige, Mike O’Neill and Steve French. The ATS graduates provide exercise modeling and simulation expertise to the U.S. Army North (ARNORTH) at Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA). The HSEEP graduates strengthen ATS and ARNORTH’s collective ability to provide challenging, simulation-driven and supported full-scale exercises to ARNORTH and its subordinate units.
“This certification helps ATS support ARNORTH in its training mission to prepare its units to execute their ongoing Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA),” said Keith Ladd, director of the ATS Homeland Security Division. “ATS congratulates and thanks all of the graduates for their accomplishment, especially since they completed this important course during such a challenging time in America’s history.”
