The Model Needs Assessment is the first step in utilizing the TEPP Tools. The Model Needs Assessment is a self assessment document that is used to determine your jurisdiction's readiness for response to a transportation accident involving radioactive material. By working through the Needs Assessment questions, you will determine strengths and identify possible improvement areas. The Model Needs Assessment will help you identify improvement areas for both training and procedures.
If training is determined to be an area in need of improvement, the Modular Emergency Response Radiological Transportation Training (MERRTT) program can be used to improve identified training deficiencies. If procedural weaknesses are identified, the TEPP Model Procedures can be implemented to help correct deficiencies in this area.
