Defense Department Seeks Preparedness Partnerships

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) hosted a week-long workshop on ways it can work with local, state, and federal governments to provide assistance for emergencies.
“The Department of Defense brings capabilities that no other federal agency has, and it’s important for us to be able to work together, so that we can link capability to need,” said Deanne Criswell, director of operational coordination at FEMA.
DoD officials led discussions on best practices and how to identify areas of improvement, while stressing the importance of DoD in building relationships within the disaster relief community.
