Maggi’s Update on Cascadia Rising: Link to Cascadia Rising page

  • National level exercise called Cascadia Rising: First week of June (7th - 10th). Scenario earthquake. Multi-state functional exercise.
  • In partnership with California Earthquake Clearinghouse
  • Will lead to a series of subsequent exercises (e.g. Haywire Exercise in October, Vigilant Guard Exercise).
  • The cluster can observe on Cascadia Rising, and use that as a learning experience to see how we can get more involved, and then apply those lessons in the later exercises.
  • How can we observe? At minimum there will be a webex, but we can also work with the data that results.
  • The JPL team will also be having telecons during the week of the exercise that we can plug into.
  • Info available through xchangecore and spotonresponse (you can sign up for an account on spotonresponse.com).
  • Sean will setup a new wiki page for the Cascadia Rising Project on the Disaster Cluster wiki.

Dave's Update on Geo-Collaborate

  • Making a lot of progress with the Fleet Response Working Group (FRWG).
  • AHC had annual meeting of FRWG in Philadelphia, where we established a key POC with the weather service to provide product feedback for improvements.
  • 3/4 day workshop being planned (Late Summer-Early Fall 2016): "Data Driven Decision Making Workshop". Determining what the data requirements are for a given hazard event.
  • Looking at working with financial transaction data to monitor open/closed status of Fuel, Pharmacies, Grocery Stores.
  • Updating new GeoCollaborate
