Canada-U.S. Enhanced Resiliency Experiment (CAUSE II) Joint Report


The goal of the joint Action Plan is to build upon the existing perimeter approach to security and economic competitiveness and thereby lead to security enhancements and an accelerated flow of people, goods and services. Further, this partnership is intended to ensure that binational coordination is not geographically limited to the border crossing but rather is extended to public safety issues that simultaneously affect both nations, regardless of where incidents occur. Indeed, the design of the simulated events during CAUSE II confirmed that an event near the border can require cooperation between officials in both countries. The shared goal within this partnership centers on enhancing the coordination of emergency responses during binational disasters.
