FEMA City Planner Resource (CPR) Tools
The Chemical CPR (cCPR) tool is being developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in support of the FEMA/CBRN Office to provide chemical-release related information and effects, and is based on the methodology that was developed to build the Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) CPR (iCPR). The iCPR is an interactive web-GIS based tool that provides IND effect information for 60 major US cities. Information products are available for 600 scenarios covering 60 major US cities, with 2 yields and 5 predominant weather patterns (1 year long and 4 seasonal) for each city. The tool helps Planners to 1) quickly select input parameter sets for a given city and 2) predict the effects of an IND based on relevant characteristics from previously run high fidelity model simulations. The iCPR provides pre-calculated scenario specific information on population, geographic, and infrastructure impacts from prompt effects and fallout; movies of fallout transport and deposition; Interagency Modeling and Atmospheric Assessment Center (IMAAC) Briefing Products and Technical Products; downloadable scenario specific reports, movies, shapefiles, and kmz/kml files; as well as Federal guidance and nuclear/radiological effects background information. The cCPR tool, like the iCPR, is intended to be a resource for Response and Exercise Planners to obtain effects information for specific chemical release scenarios in specific cities/areas to support the chemical planning process and exercise development. FEMA and LLNL are currently developing the requirements for the tool by identifying locations, scenarios and information that will be useful to end users. This phase includes reaching out to planning communities across the US for input and feedback to assure that the final cCPR tool meets the needs of the chemical planning community. 1

Flood Apex Program: Rethinking America’s Costliest Disaster
The Flood Apex Program was established in response to the direct request of FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate to bring together new and emerging technologies to increase communities’ resilience to flood disasters and provide flood predictive analytic tools to FEMA, state and local governments and other stakeholders. The Program’s key objectives are to reduce fatalities and property losses from future flood events; increase community resilience to disruptions caused by flooding; and develop better investment strategies to prepare for, respond to, recover from and mitigate against flood hazards. Its major product will be a National Flood Decision Support Toolkit (NFDST) to provide all levels of government with data, models, forecasting methods and access to other resources necessary to manage all. Flood Apex was initiated in January 2016 and will conclude at the end of FY2020. 32
