Director, National Emergency Management Agency, The Bahamas (2019)

PDC's advanced modeling capabilities and mapped products helped accurately anticipate the nature and extent of impacts from Dorian so that we could protect the most at-risk communities and coordinate life-saving humanitarian relief. These products were used daily in planning and public outreach, and in briefing national officials, including the Prime Minister, to prepare effectively. In addition, PDC team members gathered, analyzed, and disseminated critical information that helped organize crucial emergency support functions with the responsibility for evacuation
and relief, public health and human services, search and rescue, and the restoration of critical public infrastructure.

I was specifically asked to pass on to you how everyone was impressed and grateful for the JADE for the Afghanistan scenario. It was exactly what they needed to begin discussions on contingency planning and all that. It of course paves the way for when we need to do one there for real.

Kevin Miller
Sacramento, CA, USA

Earthquake & Tsunami Program Manager
Seismic Hazards Branch, California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (2019)

without PDC's support. In the words of INDOPACOM's Exercises Chief, this exercise was the most robust of its kind ever to be conducted in INDOPACOM.

Scott Griffin
Camp H. M. Smith, Halawa, HI 96701, USADeputy, C4 Engagements and Interoperablity, J65 U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (2019)

I am writing on behalf of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command's Multinational Communications Interoperability Program (MCIP) to express our gratitude for the support your organization has provided in building and executing exercises, briefs to senior personnel, and training on DisasterAWARE. PDC's exceptional contributions led the effort to build a meaningful scenario and was the basis on which a very successful PACIFIC ENDEAVOR 2019 (PE19) was completed.
