If you are developing a multi-jurisdictional plan, you will need to create a planning team structure that allows for coordination and accountability among and within the jurisdictions (see Figure 2.1). Each jurisdiction will have at least one representative on the planning team. This representative will need to report back to their community on a regular basis, as well as gather feedback and input for the plan. Another planning team model may include a core group of individuals from each jurisdiction participating on the planning team. The method of representation should be based on each community’s size and the level of effort required to assess unique risks and develop specific mitigation actions.
