The Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) presents CAPSTONE-14. Under the direction of the CUSEC Board of Directors,
CAPSTONE-14 is a three-year, multi-state scope of planning and
activities culminating in a major, multi-state earthquake exercise in
June 2014. It is designed to strengthen partnerships between local,
state, and federal governments, while engaging public
and private sector entities in planning response and recovery from a
occurring within the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ). Included in the
initiative are both CUSEC Member, and Associate States.
Following any disaster, private sector entities are a pivotal player in emergency response and recovery. To that end, one of the primary focus areas of CAPSTONE-14 is private sector integration in the emergency planning, mitigation, and response/recovery arenas. As part of the CAPSTONE initiative, a"Private Sector Workgroup" has been formed to provide key input into areas such as resource distribution, transportation, communications, and long term recovery.
The following links will provide more information related to the CAPSTONE-14 Private Sector Workgroup.
