Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) Event List

The Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) and its Center for Regional Disaster Resilience (CRDR) have been awarded 2017 and 2019 National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) Security and Resilience Challenge grants for critical infrastructure.

2019 Project
​The 2019 Resilience Challenge Grant project seeks to develop methodologies to allow for the rapid inspection of critical infrastructure in post-disasters using drones (also called Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)). This information can then be shared with state level emergency management agencies to establish better situational awareness and a common operating picture.
