Selecting Strategic Partners and Interagency Collaborators
In terms of selecting strategic partners and interagency collaborators, the most important question is, What are the response linkages that will allow the emergency preparedness network to respond to a disaster or emergency?
Emergency preparedness requires many organizations. Each student should formulate a brief sustainability plan for maintaining the appropriate community linkages for a high level of public health preparedness. List the community partners that you identified as key and/or strategic in your plan. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each of them and their role in your overall strategic sustainability plan for emergency disasters.
MPH Students: Please consider which organizations are critical for partnerships if you are working in a public health agency, such as a local health department or CDC.
