The CSZ 2016 Exercise is a progressive exercise series commencing in early 2014 with building block training and exercise ramp-up events culminating in a comprehensive four day EOC-to-EOC functional exercise in the Spring 2016.
Focus on coastal jurisdictions and tribes along with select I-5 corridor and Eastern WA jurisdictions.

CSZ Exercise 2016CSZ Earthquake/Tsunami Impacts
Enhance Joint Operations – Success in managing the consequences of a wide-area catastrophic disaster hinges on how well local, state, tribal, and federal actions and the whole community are integrated and synchronized. The desire is for all exercise players at all levels to gain an appreciation of the sheer necessity of joint unified action.
Instill an operational mindset shift to ‘catastrophic’ – Our elasticity and ability to stretch to handle the impacts of a catastrophic disaster is a daunting challenge. We need to plan and exercise for the worse.
Planning Springboard – The lessons learned in the CSZ 2016 Exercise will be used to develop and/or update CSZ and related catastrophic disaster response plans at all levels and to inform future exercise design.
Collaboratively plan, design, and conduct a comprehensive functional exercise that tests local, state, tribal, and federal catastrophic earthquake plans to improve our joint-interagency and whole community ability to effectively respond to a wide-area, catastrophic earthquake and tsunami caused by a rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) fault along the Northwest coast of the United States.
The CSZ 2016 Functional Exercise will test EOC-to-EOC ability to perform tasks and objectives (TBD) associated with all Response Core Capabilities:
Extent of Play Agreements
CSZ 2016 Exercise
‘Ground Truth’ Document
Exercise Series ‘Kick Off’ Meeting
Concept and Objectives Meeting
Initial Planning Meeting
Mid-Term Planning Meeting
MSEL Synchronization Meetings
Final Planning Meeting
After Action Report Published
Please note: A number of ramp-up events to include training courses, seminars, workshops, tabletops (all TBD) will be conducted prior to the culminating functional exercise.
Plenty of TBD based on partner input
The following are some of the major issues that will need to be determined in designing the CSZ 2016 Functional Exercise:
Jurisdictions not playing in the exercise will be highly encouraged to serve on the Exercise Design Team and to assist neighboring communities that are playing
