Working Together For A Safer Tomorrow


Network Integration:

Working Together for A Safer Tomorrow Can Assist Your Tribe, Community, State, Educational Institution, Business, or Organization.

Working Together for A Safer Tomorrow relies upon state, local, or tribal community based sponsorship as a key element of its programs and activities. Any community group, which is interested in sponsoring an activity, simply requests to do so by sending a letter or email to: Working Together for A Safer Tomorrow [insert address here] or Upon receipt of the request, a member of the Working Together for A Safer Tomorrow team meets with community representatives. They jointly select themes about risks, which are regionally relevant, and develop an event format, which provides opportunities for target audiences. Events can include symposia, workshops, meetings, educational camps, in-services, technical training sessions, or community events such as open houses or exhibits. Funding for the development and implementation of activities is dependent, to varying degrees, upon regional community networking and support.

Throughout all planning and implementation of the events, community collaboration is emphasized among state, local and/or tribal entities. Working Together for a Safer Tomorrow is a program to facilitate diverse groups within a variety of regional communities to network, prepare, and reduce the economic impact of terror and disaster events.
