Identify which 5 types of partners the city should focus its energy toward. For each one, provide the following:

You are the city manager of Wet Town, Mississippi. Your community considers its greatest threat to be hurricanes. It is January, and you have only 6 months to help the underresourced emergency management team develop refined plans for preparing for and responding to a hurricane of at least a category 3 strength. Your city council has tasked you with developing a broad partnership plan that is aimed at identifying industries, civic organizations, facilities, and other capabilities (like first responder capabilities, interagency partner networks, and so on) with which the city should develop formal agreements. Your time, staff, and resources are limited, so focus on the top 5 industries, facilities, or capabilities with which the city must partner. You may choose whole types of a capability or specific individual organizations, but a type counts as only 1 in the list of 5.
