PVPC Staff Member Completes Emergency Planning Training

Soloe Dennis, Pioneer Valley Planning Commission Public Health Emergency Preparedness Planner for the Hampden County Health Coalition, recently completed the Master Exercise Practitioner program (MEP) at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute in Emmetsburg, Maryland.

The FEMA Emergency Management Institute created the Master Exercise Practitioner program to recognize those individuals who have completed its prescribed training program and demonstrated, through hands-on application, a high degree of professionalism and capability in the area of emergency management and preparedness. Currently, there are fewer than 1,700 MEPS in the United States. 

As a certified Master Exercise Practitioner, Dennis has exhibited mastery of exercise program management in accordance with the policy, doctrine, practice, and tools in the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program. In his capacity at PVPC, he designs, develops, and evaluates exercises for all 19 municipal health departments and boards in Hampden County. He also serves as an expert on regional and local exercises for emergency preparedness.
