CALIFORNIA EARTHQUAKE CLEARINGHOUSE
ShakeOut Exercise
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT


The purpose of the Clearinghouse exercise is to introduce everyone to the concept of expanded  operations possible through the addition of the virtual Clearinghouse we’re developing using the Unified Incident Command and Decision Support (UICDS) middleware. This year's scenario is a catastrophic San Francisco Bay Area earthquake. On October 16, Clearinghouse members will have the opportunity to use data collection tools to share information with the Clearinghouse which will then be displayed on the Clearinghouse website. We will also host a webex running concurrent with the exercise where you can tune in to hear the action narrated live, ask questions and hear from the various Clearinghouse partners (CGS, Cal OES, USGS, EERI, NASA, SpotOnResponse) developing the tools you’ll be using.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE IN THE BAY AREA TO PARTICIPATE!

This is the fourth of six planned Clearinghouse exercises.  Over the last year we’ve listened to the feedback you’ve provided and continue to refine the SpotOnResponse mobile app being developed for us and we are eager to share with you the latest improvements, including off-line reporting capability. Visit the Clearinghouse website to register, create a login for SpotOnResponse and for more information about the exercise.

Training sessions will be held via Webex (see website for details: http://www.californiaeqclearinghouse.org/shakeout-2013/) on the following dates and times:

  • Monday, October 7, 2013, 1:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 1:00 p.m.
  • Monday, October 14, 2013, 1:00 p.m.

If you would like to participate in one of the pre-exercise online training sessions, we ask that you RSVP to caclearinghouse@eqclearinghouse.org  and indicate which session you plan to attend.
