Both state or regional partners that serve a vital role in ensuring the successful implementation of this strategy will work together to learn each others' responsibilty and roles in the larger picture of the coalition approach to disaster response and planning.

• Objective 3: Participants will understand the whole community approach and the importance of coalition building to adequately develop capabilities across all mission areas.
