California Statewide Medical and Health Exercise

The California Statewide Medical and Health Exercise Program (SMHE), utilizing HSEEP and aligning with PHEP and HPP grant requirements, offers customizable exercise templates for jurisdictions, organizations, and facilities.

Updated annually, the program provide objectives, scenarios, and focus regions for participation in the yearly exercise. Facilitated by CDPHi and the California Emergency Medical Service Authority, SWMHE aligns with state-level engagement and grant requirements, though local jurisdictions have the option to conduct their own exercises.

The SWMHE is proposed to resume in April 2025 and annually thereafter, aligning with the new five-year project period starting July 1, 2024.

You can find more information and access exercise materials on the SWMHE Website.
