Event Details

The Alameda County Emergency Managers Association in collaboration with the Regional Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (RCISR) Toolbox Initiative* will conduct a Tabletop Exercise on Critical Infrastructure Impacts and Information-Sharing for Response and Initial Recovery, with a focus on Water Systems and Energy, on August 30, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

 

Purpose

The Tabletop will provide an opportunity for county, city, and special district representatives together with their counterparts from other critical infrastructures, non-profits, and private sector organizations to gain greater awareness of major earthquake hazards from the U.S. Geological Survey’s recently-released HayWired Scenario data on what can be expected in a M7.0 Hayward Fault Earthquake.  Such a disaster could cause widespread damage to interdependent lifelines and other critical infrastructures resulting in long-term service disruptions.  Participants will also hear from regional utilities on their ongoing analysis of potential damage to water pipelines and energy assets that could impact other critical infrastructures and essential services.   

 

Focus and Scope

Participants will use the HayWired Scenario data to examine:

  • How cities, special districts, utilities, and other key organizations will obtain and share information on impacts to critical infrastructures and resource needs, including obtaining mutual assistance, and provide this and other situational awareness data to County EOCs;
  • Challenges to exchanging this critical information;
  • Tools that can be used to share damage, technical, and other data, and enable collaboration on response and restoration decision-making.

Participants will be introduced to, and discuss the evolving RCISR InfoXchange of interconnected community of interest dashboards and show how a County Emergency Management “Op Area” dashboard can facilitate coordination and information-sharing, and provide access to plans, procedures, guidance, and tools to assist with response and recovery.

 

Who Should Attend

Representatives from local governments, including City Managers, State and Federal Agencies, Lifelines and Critical Infrastructures, and other organizations with responsibilities in managing risk and coordinating and restoring operations in the event of disruptions to interdependent lifelines that impact Bay Area Counties.

* The RCISR Toolbox Initiative, funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Protection and Programs Directorate, has been developing a Cross-Sector Information Sharing “System of Systems” to enable exchange of data in different formats using methods organizations commonly employ.  USGS is a key Toolbox Initiative partner in the Initiative Core Team of 18 organizations and a broader Stakeholder Group.  The Bay Area Center for Regional Disaster Resilience serves as facilitator and administrator of the Initiative.
