In June 2016, FEMA Region X will be conducting the 2016 Cascadia Rising Exercise. The exercise scenario is an earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. While California is not playing in this exercise, a Cascadia earthquake will likely have impacts on the state. For this reason, the California Clearinghouse will be conducting a companion exercise as an opportunity to further practice Clearinghouse activation procedures.
For more information about the exercise is available on the 2016 Cascadia Rising Companion Exercise Page.
