6 6 State of Oregon Concept and Objectives (C&O) Meeting November 13 & 20, 2014 Final Concept of the Exercise Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) Catastrophic Earthquake and Tsunami Functional Exercise 2016

7 7 Exercise Dates:  June 7 - 10, 2016 Concept:  Cascadia Rising is a Functional Exercise (FE) intended to test the local, state, tribal, and federal government as well as select private sector and non-governmental organizations’ ability to jointly respond to a Cascadia Subduction Zone 9.0M earthquake and tsunami with associated aftershocks along the West Coast of the United States. Additionally, focus on emergency operations center-to-emergency operations center (EOC) operations and the ability for EOCs to coordinate all response core capability functions under the National Preparedness Goal response mission areas with an emphasis on the ‘Overarching Exercise Objectives’. Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

8 8 Scenario: 9.0 Magnitude Earthquake completely ruptures the 800-mile CSZ Fault Line. Earthquake:  Ground shaking lasting up to 5 minutes.  Numerous aftershocks with several of M7.0+. Corresponding Tsunami:  15 to 30 minute warning.  Wave height could very from 20’ to 80’ based on location.  Multiple waves hit the coast for 10-12 hours after initial shake. Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

9 9 Tiered Approach to Developing Exercise Objectives: Overarching Objectives are derived from the 14 Response Core Capabilities as listed in the National Preparedness Report. 1.Operational Communications4. Situational Assessment 2.Public Health and Medical Services5. Critical Transportation 3.Mass Care Services6. Operational Coordination Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise Overarching Objectives Joint Objectives Tactical Objectives State Objectives are the critical major operational tasks embodied within each of the broad Overarching Objectives. These tasks require collaboration amongst multiple levels of government to occur and be effective. Tactical Objectives are those typically associated with unique individual EOC processes and procedures.

10 10 Overarching Exercise Objectives : Operational Communications (ESF-2 & 14) Demonstrate the ability of EOCs to establish and sustain voice and data communications with other EOCs and with the general public to include basic restoration of communications infrastructure within the impacted area to support response operations and coordinated public messaging. Health and Medical Services (ESF-8) Demonstrate the ability to organize, coordinate, and deliver targeted public health and medical services to disaster survivors to include temporary medical facilities, medical surge operations, and patient collection, evacuation and transport to save lives and reduce the suffering of disaster survivors. Mass Care Services (ESF-6/11/17) Demonstrate the ability to coordinate and deliver life-sustaining services to disaster survivors with a focus on hydration, feeding, emergency sheltering, evacuations, and donations and volunteer management. Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

11 11 Overarching Exercise Objectives (continued) : Situational Assessment (ESF-5) Demonstrate the ability of EOCs at all levels to provide decision-makers and EOC officials with relevant information regarding the extent of disaster damages to critical infrastructures and other facilities, cascading effects, and the status of ongoing response operations and share this information with other EOCs and critical stakeholders. Critical Transportation (ESF-1) Demonstrate the ability to establish access into impacted areas via appropriate ground, air, and maritime transportation corridors to deliver response teams, equipment, and disaster relief supplies to meet the basic needs of disaster survivors and stabilize the incident. Operational Coordination (ESF-5 & ESF-7) Demonstrate the ability to establish operational control and coordination structures within the impacted region to include the mobilization, employment, and sustainment of critical internal and external response resources to meet basic survivor needs and stabilize the incident. Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

12 12 Anticipated Exercise Participants:  OR Coastal, I-5 Corridor, and East- of-the-Cascades cities, counties, and tribes  OR OEM, state agency Emergency Support Functions  FEMA Region 10 and regional federal interagency partners  FEMA National Response Coordination Center (NRCC) - TBD  Department of Defense (NORTHCOM, NRNW, etc.) i.e. Ardent Sentry  Nongovernmental Organizations (VOAD)  Select private sector partners  Private and public critical infrastructure lifeline providers  Public FSE components (e.g. Tsunami Evacuation Drills) - TBD Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

13 13 Parameters of Play – Local and Tribal EOCs: Option 1:Locals play 4 days for 8-hours at full activation. Option 2:Locals play minimum of 2 days for 8-hours at full activation and staff EOCs with a Simulation Cell remaining 2 days. EOCs only participating for two days must play either Days 1 and 2 or Days 2 and 3. The purpose of the Simulation Cell (SimCell) is to simulate/mimic all facets of an EOC operation in lieu of a full complement of staff. The SimCell should be staffed at the appropriate level to support functions that include but are not limited to Resource Management, Operational Communications and Coordination, Situational Awareness, and External Affairs. Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

14 14 Parameters of Play – OR State ECC and FEMA Region 10 Regional Response Coordination Center (RRCC):  Play 4 days for 8-hours at full activation. Parameters of Play – Supporting Agencies:  Agencies, departments, and other components supporting EOCs agree to provide appropriate staff per EOC plans and procedures, and at the direction of the EOC Director or Manager. Cascadia Rising 2016 Exercise

15 15 Joint Military Exercise Activities: Concurrent with the regional Cascadia Rising activities, the Department of Defense and the National Guard bureaus of both states, will be engaged in conducting joint military response exercises using a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake and tsunami scenario. Four separate, but integrated exercises will be conducted involving multiple military assets and resources deployed in support of civilian authorities.  Ardent Sentry  Vigilant Guard  Ultimate Caduceus  Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore (JLOTS) Cascadia Rising Exercise 2016

18 18 State Exercise Objective Methodology: Supporting the Overarching Exercise Objectives, Oregon has identified a selection of State Exercise Objectives to be used as a point of integration between all participating state agencies, local and tribal governments, and private sector entities. These State Objectives are keyed to six core capabilities, and associated Emergency Support Functions. Expectations of Local, Tribal and Non-Governmental Participating Entities: Each participating entity will develop at least one jurisdictional-specific objective in each of the six Core Capability areas in support of the identified Overarching Exercise Objectives. Oregon Exercise Objectives Development

19 19 Expectations of State Agencies: Oregon Emergency Management has identified the requirement for each of Oregon’s 18 Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) to develop at least one Oregon-specific objective for each Overarching Objective. Oregon Exercise Objectives Development (continued)
