CUSEC, along with our Member and Associate States, are participating in FEMA’s Shaken Fury 2019 regional earthquake exercise from May 29 – June 7, 2019. The exercise is designed to test response and recovery capabilities following a major New Madrid Seismic Zone earthquake and is the culmination of several years of planning and preparedness activities involving FEMA, states, and many other organizations.
During Shaken Fury, CUSEC will provide exercise participants with simulated data through the Shaken Fury Regional Information Sharing Portal (RISP). The RISP is an online tool developed in support of our Member States’ needs for regional shared situational awareness after a disaster. Ahead of Shaken Fury, CUSEC has been developing the RISP with support from the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, Science & Technology Directorate, which has also been heavily involved in the exercise planning process.
Exercise participants will use the RISP to get simulated information and updates on community lifeline systems such as:
- Power outages
- Fuel status
- Transportation impacts
- Communications status
- Private sector store closings and more…
