ABSTRACT

National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE 11) Quick Look Report (QLR)   [open pdf - 2MB]

On Monday, May 16, 2011, thousands of participants across the United States received notification of a simulated catastrophic earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), officially kicking off the National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE 11) functional exercise. From May 16-19, 2011, Federal, State, regional, local, international, non-governmental, and private sector partners participated in the exercise, the capstone event of a White House-directed, Congressionally mandated cycle of planning and preparedness events. The purpose of this report is to summarize preliminary exercise observations. Over the course of the exercise, evaluators were deployed to Federal, State, and regional locations to observe the exercise, document play, and collect data (including hotwash discussions and feedback forms). For this quick look, evaluators collected participant feedback from multiple sources to gather both strengths and areas for improvement.
