After Action Report

After Action Reports (AAR) are designed to analyze the management or response to an incident, exercise or event by identifying strengths as well as potential areas of improvement.

AARs are intended to be used as a tool by College functional units involved in an incident. An ARR provides analysis for lessons learned, best practices and recommendations for future planning, training, and exercise development. As improvement actions are identified and addressed, it is important that any relevant plans, policies and procedures are updated accordingly.

The AAR Template can be utilized by any College department or functional unit to identify lessons learned after an emergency, special event or exercise. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Emergency Management.
