Q1: List the options that a local business can choose to take part in emergency preparedness and hazard mitigation for its own benefits as well as for building community resilience to disasters. (hints: internally, e.g., business continuity operation and planning; externally, e.g., via partnerships with public and/or nonprofit entities).

Q2: Relate to the response to (and maybe short-term recovery from) Hurricanes Florence or Michael in 2018, pick a local community that was affected by one of the two storms and summarize/critique on the local business response activities that could have been benefited by proactive efforts in preparedness and mitigation. You may want to look at the numerous news articles on mainstream media and watch interview video clips on the Weather Channel, for instance, to get some good ideas to answer this question.

Q3: Why do public-private partnerships (PPP) matter in emergency management in general, and hazard mitigation in particular? 

Q4: Why is the third sector needed in hazard mitigation? List the three major methods of enlisting a third sector entity.

Q3: Why do public-private partnerships (PPP) matter in emergency management in general, and hazard mitigation in particular?

In the field of hazards and mitigation, there are partnerships that can help people if they have been hit by a hazard. These partnerships are called Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). Public-Private Partnerships are collaborative, cooperative groups with the aim of proactively addressing community issues, such as pre-disaster mitigation, which includes a governmental agency working in tandem with any private entity, as no one sector can accomplish the task in question on its own. Public-Private Partnerships are very important to emergency management and hazard and mitigation. They are needed to address disaster preparedness and mitigation. They are needed to address disaster preparedness and mitigation. Without them, I’m pretty sure a lot of people would be dead if a hazard hit them. Another thing they do is allow the collective effort of mitigation activities to be shared between all stakeholders, where everyone benefits from a safer community. Public-Private Partnerships are a solution-based tool for pre-disaster, during a disaster, and post-disaster in which the entire community benefits. Working collaboratively can drive down the cost of mitigation. Cofunders take no greater sense of responsibility for the mitigated site or activity, and on existing hazards can then be lessened or removed entirely. Because Public-Private Partnerships are using community resources, they can implement sustainable measures that will mitigate their risk for the long term. Although preparedness and timely response helps reduce the time lost due to damage or loss of function after a natural disaster, it is mitigation spurred by a Public-Private Partnership that helps increase the resiliency of infrastructure as well as factories, businesses, and homes. Increased resiliency helps communities, businesses, and individuals recover more quickly. By creating a dynamic Public-Private Partnership and working together in advance, relationships can be built that increase trust and lower false exceptions that could have either sector making erroneous decisions based on assumptions.

One example of Public-Private Partnerships is FEMA’s 1997 Project Impact. This was a Public-Private Partnership that was led by government local emergency management offices. The goal of Project Impact was to support, from the federal to the local level, the development of mitigation programs to reduce or eliminate community risk.
