CDEM exercise calendar

MCDEM collates and displays exercises that form part of the National Exercise Programme in a calendar format.

A four-tier approach to exercising is used:

  • Tier One: Local exercise (individual organisation)
  • Tier Two: Group exercise (within CDEM Group)
  • Tier Three: Inter-Group exercise (across CDEM Groups, may include MCDEM)
  • Tier Four: National exercise (New Zealand, or part thereof, including central government).

Only exercises at tier 2 or above are listed below. The exercise calendar also includes exercises that are part of the National Security System National Exercise Programme. See the National CDEM Exercise Programme page for more information.
