This will be an important regional planning workshop, being conducted by the Regional Catastrophic Planning team of NY-NJ-CT-PA on September 4, 2014 at the Consolidated Edison Electric Company Planning facility in Long Island City, New York.

This important workshop will bring together private sector representatives from the electric, food, and petroleum sectors, along with state and local operational personnel, to discuss sector-related issues regarding operational choke points during regional response efforts. Once these choke points have been identified, recommendations will then be developed on ways to improve processes to share information, expedite recovery, and ultimately create exercise drills that can be incorporated into public and private sector exercises in the future.

The objectives of this workshop will be as follows:

  1. Confirm sector focused working groups (electric, food and fuel), with 6 to 8 sector operator participants in each.  
  2. Identify 2 to 3 operational chokepoints in regional response efforts for the electric, food & fuel sectors.
  3. Identify sector focused essential elements of information and existing information sharing process relevant to these chokepoints.
  4. Gather recommendations on approaches to improve, coordinate or integrate information sharing processes.

This is an invitation only workshop and will be designed to engage in candid conversation across multiple sectors and state and local government.
