Hurricane Claire Regional Exercise
The 2021 RHPC CMOC Hurricane Exercise series (named Hurricane Claire) was a multiple-agency, multiple-site incidents designed to exercise and assess the capability of the coalition region to respond in a coordinated effort to a region wide Hurricane with
cascading effects. This exercise was sponsored by SETRAC.
The purpose of this exercise was to provide participants with an opportunity to evaluate current first receiving concepts, plans, and capabilities related to a severe weather outbreak. The exercise focused on coordination and continuity of operations.
Scenario: The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a Tropical Disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance has been given a 40-60% chance to develop into a Tropical Storm. If further development
occurs this could be our third named Atlantic Storm of the season, which would be Claire.
Objectives: 1) Assess the ability of the coalition to maintain communications when primary methods are affected. 2) Evaluate the ability of the coalition members to Shelter-In-Place and/or evacuate as required prior to or during a hurricane.
