Area jurisdictions plan to participate in Missouri's "CAPSTONE '14" exercise
In June 2014, jurisdictions across Missouri participated in a full-scale exercise called CAPSTONE 14. The exercise focused on response and recovery from a catastrophic earthquake in the New Madrid zone. Focus areas included regional communications, situational awareness, transportation and resource management, along with private-sector integration. The state of Missouri led exercise design and execution. In addition to local government agencies, the Missouri Hospital Association and the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services participated.
