LLIS Lesson Learned: Multi-Agency Coordination: State-Led Efforts to Coordinate Mass Care Response [open pdf - 312KB]
"In 2009, the State of Florida hosted one of the largest, most complex disaster response exercises in history, simulating landfall of a major hurricane across multiple major population centers in Florida. The exercise demonstrated the value of coordinating Mass Care response between various federal, state, county, local, and tribal agencies, as well as private sector partners and volunteer agencies. State emergency officials noted the value of state-led daily meetings and conference calls with all parties to harness the expertise of all involved in assessing requirements for Mass Care Services and directing available resources to meet those needs."
