3 3 Welcome and Introductions

4 4 General Housekeeping  Restroom facilities  Smoking is prohibited in the building  Concessions  Fire Exits

5 5 Exercise Scope  NLE 11 will be a multiagency, multisite event designed to exercise and assess the national capability to respond to a catastrophic earthquake emanating from the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ). The event will simulate a 7.7 magnitude earthquake in the southwest segment of the NMSZ, forming a rupture under Marked Tree, Arkansas, to Ridgley, Tennessee. The NMSZ earthquake triggers another 6.0 magnitude earthquake along the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone (WVSZ), near Mt. Carmel, Illinois. The event causes widespread death, injury, and damage to major infrastructure in the impacted area. The NLE 11 functional exercise (FE) provides local, State, and Federal agencies with an opportunity to exercise and evaluate the implementation of doctrine and policies provided in their respective earthquake response plans, in addition to the National Incident Management System (NIMS)

6 6 Exercise Purpose  The purpose of this exercise is to evaluate player actions against current response plans and capabilities for a catastrophic earthquake response. The exercise focuses specifically on the first four days of earthquake response and actions and decisions made by the Federal and State government to support lifesaving and life-sustaining activities

7 7 Target Capabilities  Communications  Citizen Evacuation and Shelter-in-Place  Mass Care (Sheltering, Feeding, and Related Services)  Critical Resources Logistics and Distribution  Emergency Public Information and Warning  Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Management  Medical Surge

8 8  At 9:00 AM (CDT), on 16 May 2011, the southwestern segment of the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) ruptures near Marked Tree, Arkansas. The rupture of the segment continues approximately 90 miles in a northeast direction to near Ridgley, Tennessee. The released energy is felt as shaking throughout the central United States, and two minutes later (9:02 CDT), the shaking triggers a second event in the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone (WVSZ), near Mt. Carmel, IL  There are reports of widespread damage for hundreds of miles, including collapse of large-scale buildings, power and communication failures, gas leaks, and other damages associated with liquefaction. There are numerous cascading effects that continue to transpire Scenario

9 9 Scenario (cont’d)

10 10 Power and Communications Failure  Statewide power outage for the duration of the exercise  Statewide commercial communication outage until Day 3 (1–72 hours)  Heavy and moderately affected counties wide area tactical communications outage until Day 2 (1–48 hours)

15 15 EMAC  The Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) is a strong focus for Arkansas in this exercise  Due to the catastrophic event that occurs, EMAC will be a necessity for survival  Commodities and assistance will be difficult to obtain, due to the damage that would occur not just in Arkansas, but the entire United States  This exercise will allow Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas to develop coordination that is vital for each State in this exercise and future events

16 16 Communications Demonstrate the ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to access, establish, and maintain a continuous flow of communications among multiple jurisdictions, agencies, governmental officials, and the private sector for the duration of the emergency, while utilizing redundant interoperable voice and data communications systems needed to support mission critical lifesaving and life-sustaining operations AR Exercise Objectives

17 17 Citizen Evacuation and Shelter-in-Place Demonstrate the State’s and Counties’ ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to ensure affected and at-risk populations are safely sheltered-in-place and/or evacuated to safe areas in order to obtain access to medical care, physical assistance, shelter, and other essential needs, and are safely re-entered into the affected area AR Exercise Objectives (cont’d)

18 18 Mass Care Demonstrate the effectiveness of the State’s and Counties’ written plans, policies, and procedures for providing mass care services: sheltering, staffing, feeding, and bulk distribution for the general population and individuals with disabilities and access and functional needs, service animals, and companion animals throughout the affected area in order to obtain access to medical care, physical assistance, shelter, and other essential services AR Exercise Objectives (cont’d)

19 19 Critical Resource Logistics and Distribution Demonstrate the State’s and Counties’ ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to access and establish points of distribution (PODs), State Staging Areas (SSAs), Incident Support Bases (ISBs), and reception centers to receive and distribute critical resource supplies, equipment, and personnel to affected areas throughout the State, including hazardous materials (HazMat) and search and rescue (SAR) resources AR Exercise Objectives (cont’d)

20 20 Emergency Public Information and Warning Demonstrate the capability of the State’s and Counties’ public information officer(s) to coordinate with Federal, State, local, private sector, and nongovernmental agencies for the formulation and dissemination of clear, accurate, and consistent information to the public and media and to establish a Joint Information Center (JIC) to monitor media contacts and conduct press briefings AR Exercise Objectives (cont’d)

21 21 EOC Management Demonstrate the State’s and Counties’ ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to effectively manage a catastrophic earthquake event through multi-agency coordination by activating and mobilizing Emergency Support Functions (ESFs), intrastate and inter-state mutual aid agreements (MAAs), and Federal aid AR Exercise Objectives (cont’d)
