pnwer disaster resilience program
PNWER Disaster Resilience Program

PNWER is referenced in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan as the model for bringing the public and private sectors together to address critical infrastructure protection issues. – Feb. 2009

PNWER is listed as a best practice for working with other states and provinces to address critical infrastructure security issues in the NGA’s Governor’s Guide to Homeland Security - March 2007

the resilience tautology
The Resilience Tautology
  • Resilient assets and infrastructures require resilient regions
  • Resiliency requires understanding which assets are critical in any specific scenario
  • Understanding criticality depends upon understanding the interdependencies between and among critical infrastructures (criticality is dynamic)
  • Understanding interdependencies require cross sector information sharing
  • Cross sector and public/private information sharing requires the creation of an environment of trust where stakeholders feel ‘safe’ to share their vulnerabilities

Fostering Cooperation and Collaboration

  • Internal and Regional Interdependencies Initiatives provide a “business case” for organizations, regions and states to overcome deep-rooted differences, turf issues, and stove-piped thinking
  • Enables us to focus on how we can partner with perceived competitors to increase our own readiness and the resilience of the region

2009 Dams Sector Exercise Series (DSES-09) Columbia River Basin Project Goal

To produce a holistic, cost-effective strategy and implementation plan to assure the resilience of the Columbia River Basin with focus on dams, locks, and levees

Project will assess, from a risk-based perspective, consequences for interdependent infrastructures and other essential service providers from all-hazards disasters and identify prevention and mitigation measures

2009 Dams Sector Exercise Series – Columbia Basin Project Goal

current project status
Current Project Status

Currently the 2009 Dams Sector Exercise Series is nearly complete

Dam owners, Emergency Managers along with Federal, State, and Local Stakeholders have been engaged in this holistic approach to dam and levee failure

The first phase had wide involvement of stakeholders from throughout the Columbia River Basin

Pilot Project to Develop a Comprehensive

Community Bio-Event Resilience Roadmap

Bring together public health and other experts with key state and local agencies, infrastructures, industry, business, academic, and community organizations to focus on community bio-event resilience

Enable government agencies at all levels with regional stakeholders to gain greater knowledge of bio-event impacts on communities and longer-term consequences

comprehensive community bio event resilience plan ccerp
Comprehensive Community Bio-Event Resilience Plan (CCERP)

Identify common goals, gaps and barriers between private sector organizations and public health, healthcare partners and local emergency management on improving information exchange, resource management and communications during health and medical emergencies

Develop a holistic blueprint for community bio-event resilience that will encompass all aspects of preparedness and disaster management, including prevention, protection, response, recovery/longer term restoration, and risk-based mitigation to address communications, business and operational continuity, logistics, supply chain, and resource issues, public education/training, and exercises.
