"National Level Exercise 2-08 (Tier II)
The National Level Exercise 2-08 (NEP 2-08) is a National Exercise Program (NEP) Tier II exercise scheduled for May 1-8, 2008 and supported by NED with a National Simulation Cell. NEP 2-08 will merge the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Continuity Program’s (NCP) Eagle Horizon continuity capabilities exercise with U.S. Northern Command’s (NORTHCOM) Ardent Sentry 2008 exercise, and FEMA Disaster Operation’s Hurricane Preparedness Exercise (HPE) national response exercise.
NEP 2-08 will include multiple scenario elements in several venues in the United States and Canada. A Category 4 hurricane will impact FEMA Region III and the National Capital Region (NCR), causing continuity and response operations. Multiple terrorist attacks will occur in the state of Washington to exercise both response capabilities to chemical weapons attacks and specific Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) capabilities. An accidental VX release in Umatilla, Oregon will exercise Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP). Other venues include aerospace and maritime elements. Canada will also participate in coordinated scenario elements and exercise internal objectives.

Primary venues include the National Capital Region, FEMA Region III, the six FEMA Region III states, FEMA Region X, and the States of Washington and Oregon."
