Alaska Shield 2014 Exercise Series and Full – Scale Exercise (FSE)
As discussed and developed at the Alaska Shield 2014 Concept and Objectives Workshop hosted by the State of Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHS&EM) on July 9, 2012, in Anchorage, Alaska
The capstone event of the Alaska Shield 2014 is the full – scale exercise. An earthquake scenario resulting in major disruption will (1) exercise the ability of communities to respond, assume responsibility for initial life safety needs at the local level; (2) assess the State’s ability to coordinate resources and actions to quickly support and stabilize the life safety situation throughout the State, while planning forward for sustained response and long-term recovery; and (3) exercise joint state and federal response to a catastrophic event.
