CATEX (Catastrophic Exercise) is a regional “information sharing based” exercise series being conducted by multiple states and private sector organizations that focuses on rapid restoration of power and supply-chain sectors following disasters along the East Coast.
CATEX was formed out of FEMA’s Regional Catastrophic Planning Grant Program (RCPGP) designed to promote regional planning for future large scale and/or catastrophic events (e.g. SANDY).
CATEX produces “information sharing” based products designed to expedite information flow between multiple states and the life-line sectors (e.g. power, food, fuel, etc..) in order to help communities, governments and businesses get back to business faster following natural, man-made or accidental disasters.
