What is HEPS? HEPS is an acronym for Gate 15’s approach to preparing people and organizations for Hostile Events and stands for our Hostile Events Preparedness Series.

What is Preparedness? Preparedness is a deliberate process to ensure organizational readiness to respond to potential incidents. Gate 15 promotes use of the FEMA Preparedness Cycle, a best practice approach to ensuring progressive development and continuous improvement. The Cycle includes the following steps: Plan; Organize & Equip; Train; Exercise; Evaluate & Improve; repeat. When possible, we utilize the Homeland Security Exercise & Evaluation Program (HSEEP) methodology for exercises and our Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) approach to continuous improvement.
