Response operations training for a simulated devastating earthquake abounded at Exercise Ardent Sentry 2019 (AS-19). FEMA's
Exercise Shaken Fury tested the national incident management system. Simultaneously, U.S. Northern Command supported Shaken Fury with participation in AS-19 at the Combatant Command. U.S. Army North and JTF-CS gave support as Joint Task Forces. The units practiced a whole-of-government interagency response during AS-19 with participation from the Mississippi Army Guard and the Tennessee Air and Army National Guard to include a unit from the Texas Air National Guard assisting. Some Guard training was part of Vigilant Guard with assistance from the Tennessee Volunteer Challenge Academy. The three Defense Coordinating Officer/Elements in Regions IV, VI, VII, VIII and four states Dual Status Commanders from Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi took part as well as RVII EPLOs and LNOs. Members of a Mississippi Civil Air Patrol mobile operations center also practiced their skills. Shaken Fury was a FEMA- led exercise simulating a "no-notice" catastrophic earthquake along the New Madrid Seizmic Zone (NMSZ) near Memphis, Tennessee that affected eight states. Exercise Ardent Sentry-19 ran from May 29 through June 5 and focused on Defense Support of Civil Authorities during the mostly command post exercise, accomplished from command centers on computers using simulated troop movements. The Guard units rehearsed hands-on activities like roof-top water rescues of people role-playing as survivors and more. Most of the training took place in Tennessee, Mississippi and Missouri, with people in various roles participating from locations in Washington D.C., Colorado, Texas, Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri and Florida.
