After Action Report Guidance - Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program


The AAR is the tool used to provide feedback on the results of the exercise, it summarizes the discussion related to the plans, policies, procedures, training, resources, agreements, and relationships that have been put into place. The report also captures issues that could not be resolved during discussion and therefore require follow-up as well as alternative or innovative approaches that could be implemented.

This tool is a template from the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) manual that LHDs can use for their AARs. An AAR for either an exercise or a response to a real event is required for Project Public Health Ready recognition.
