Report: State-Federal Response Linkages Need Improving

An update on how state homeland security advisors feel about their relationships with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is provided in a 2007 survey of state directors – and it’s none too flattering for the feds.

Says the report, issued by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices: “More than half the states (57 percent) reported being dissatisfied or somewhat dissatisfied with their overall communications with DHS, and 60 percent said the quality of their communications with the department had either not changed or had deteriorated since 2006. Only slightly more than one-third, or 34 percent, said their communications with DHS had improved in that one-year period.”

The report is recommended reading for a sense of how your organization might relate to the hopes and expectations of state security and emergency response directors.
