86% of the nation’s critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector. There is a need for rapid damage assessment of these critical infrastructures immediately following a disaster. Emerging drone technology is allowing for an expedited and detailed damage assessment of infrastructures by owners and operators. The private sector needs to access to disaster zones to conduct damage assessments and then be able to share information rapidly with state emergency management agencies so that a common operating picture can be established. This workshop is organized under a 2019 DHS Resilience Challenge Grant to develop a CONOPS for access into disaster zones and the sharing of information will be prepared for Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon. Information on the other state workshops is here.
