Training and Exercise

CCEMA Training and Exercise Program

The Cumberland County Emergency Management agency seeks to support Cumberland County and its partners through whole community training, exercise, and outreach. Our Training and Exercise Coordinator works with community partners to plan and execute exercises, facilitate and coordinate training courses, and prepare opportunities for community outreach. The training and exercise program covers the full spectrum of hazards, including natural, technological, and man-made hazards. Regularly check this page for an updated schedule of the training and exercises provided by CCEMA, located on the Training and Exercise Calendar.

For more information on the courses we offer, check out our course catalog.

National Incident Management System (NIMS) Implementation and Training

Local, state, tribal, and territorial jurisdictions are required to adopt NIMS in order to receive federal Preparedness Grants, such as the Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) and the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP). You can read more about NIMS Training or view the Maine Emergency Management Agency's NIMS Crosswalk, which details which positions need NIMS training.
