Many agencies, one solution, reducing risk

“Silver Jackets allows the State and Federal partners to work seamlessly...and anticipate needs during disaster events. The Silver Jackets program maximizes the funding available… and allows the team members to work together in a synergistic manner, tapping into one another's needs and capabilities, thus creating… services that otherwise would not be available. The program allows the partner agencies to look ahead and identify potential challenges and identify solutions to address those challenges before they happen.”

Manuela Johnson, Indiana Dept of Homeland Security


Silver Jackets Goals

  • Create continuous mechanism to solve state-prioritized issues.

  • Implement or recommend solutions.

  • Improve and increase flood risk communication and outreach.

  • Facilitate strategic life-cycle planning to reduce flood risk.


Goals (continued)

  • Leverage available resources and information between agencies, for example:

    • FEMA’s Map Modernization (MapMod) and Risk MAP Programs

    • Corps Levee Inventory and Assessment Initiative

    • Provide hazard mitigation assistance to high priority actions targeted by state mitigation plans

    • Refine process for interagency communication


Approach

  • Do not duplicate similar efforts.

  • Each team different; evolves with state priorities.

  • Membership may expand or contract.


Silver Jackets Teams

Washington’s Silver Jackets program is one of about 25 currently being developed.
