Title

Public-Private Partnerships- Tools and Resources, FEMA

Description

Here are just a few reasons why, according to FEMA, it is important to start Public-Private Partnerships:
FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate states that, "There's no way government can solve the challenges of a disaster with a government-centric approach. It takes the whole team. And the private sector provides the bulk of the services every day in the community."
FEMA leadership has increased the commitment of staff, resources and funding over the past few years in order to work more closely and effectively with the U.S. private sector. Many state and local officials are doing the same.
Across the country there are many impressive public-private partnership models.
Most successful models have the following foundational core attributes: Publicly Accessible, Dedicated, Resourced, Engaged, and Sustainable.
One size does not fit all. In fact, there are a variety of models in many states and big cities that build upon these attributes in dynamic ways. Among them:
-Sharing situational awareness,
-Identifying available response and recovery resources,
-Memoranda of Agreement or Understanding,
-Joint Training and Exercises,
-Dedicated liaisons,
-Established communication protocols,
-Private Sector representation within an emergency operation center (EOC),
-Fully staffed business emergency operations centers.
Seeing the collective progress at the local, state and federal level, there is a compelling argument and ample evidence that every community would benefit from public-private collaboration.
We are better able to serve our neighbors, fellow citizens, first responders and our nation's disaster survivors in particular, when public sector and private sector representatives are active members of the same team.
We can share successful models and best practices. We can contribute effective tools. We can train and exercise together. We can identify appropriate, functional funding streams.
