The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distin- guished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autono- mous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievement of engineers. Dr. Charles M. Vest is president of the National Academy of Engineering. The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to se- cure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and educa- tion. Dr. Harvey V. Fineberg is president of the Institute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academyâs purposes of fur- thering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Ralph, J. Cicerone and Dr. Charles M. Vest are chair and vice chair, respectively, of the National Research Council. www.national-academies.org

This workshop report is dedicated to the memory of Frank Reddish, a long-time leader in natural disaster and recovery. Through years of committed and focused effort, Mr. Reddish made Miami-Dade County and the state of Florida a safer and more resilient place to live. His work drew attention and had impact both locally and nationwide. He contributed powerfully to this workshop, held September 9-10, 2009, and his work will continue to have a positive impact for years to come. vii
Acknowledgments In response to a request by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Research Council formed an ad hoc committee to assess the current state of the art in private- public sector collaboration dedicated to strengthening community disaster resilience, to identify gaps in knowledge and practice, and to recommend research areas that could be targeted for research investment by the Human Factors Division of the Department of Homeland Security. The committeeâs charge included organizing a 2-day workshop to explore relevant issues and inform the study committeeâs final recommendations. The workshop was held September 9-10, 2009, in Arlington, Virginia, and engaged a group of approximately 60 participants representing, from different regions of the country, individuals from the private and public sectors and from the research community. For providing excellent workshop presentations intended to orient attendees regarding the subject matter to be discussed, the National Research Council would like to thank Arif Alikhan, DHS, and Emily Walker, Member of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States. Also to be acknowledged are those who served as panelists for workshop discussions including: Ron Carlee, Arlington County, Virginia; Jami Haberl, Safeguard Iowa Partnership; Stephen Jordan, U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Leslie Luke, County of San Diego Office of Emergency Services; Gene Matthews, University of North Carolina; Governor Scott McCallum (Wisconsin, 2001-2003), The Aidmatrix Foundation, Inc.; Jason McNamara, Federal Emergency Management Agency; Jim Mullen, Washington State Emergency Management Division; Mickie Valente, Valente Strategic Advisers, LLC; Maria Vorel, Federal Emergency Management Agency; Brit Weber, Michigan State University; Mary Wong, Office Depot Foundation. The workshop would not have been successful without the contributions of those who attended. All participants are listed in Appendix B of this document. This workshop report has been reviewed in draft form by persons chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical expertise in accordance with procedures approved by the National Research Councilâs Report Review Committee.
