Given the geographic scope of the region, limitations of funding and staffing, and the cost of traveling across the region, PWSEDD seeks to increase partnerships with regional organizations and stakeholders. PWSEDD also seeks partnerships with other EDDs, ARDORs, and development organizations.

The focus of increasing regional partnerships will be completing adoption of the CEDS revision and increase regional emergency planning and readiness.

PWSEDD Action Plan:

  • Complete CEDS revision by December 31, 2016
  • Track and report PWSEDD attendance and participation
  • Advocate for increased regional participation in local emergency planning
  • Partner with agencies and responders on an all communities emergency drill
