Earthquake Response

Memphis District's Earthquake Response Plan prescribes the district's actions in the event that an earthquake causes major damage in the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The plan is specifically designed so that the district can quickly collect itself, establish communications with higher and adjacent agencies, and proceed with its tasks of ensuring the integrity of Corps structures and providing support to impacted communities under its own authorities and those of the Federal Response Plan.
