ADDITIONS TO CONSIDER=>I WOULD CONSIDER INCLUDING OTHER MAJOR “INDEPENDENT AGENCIES” OR “PRIVATE SECTOR CORPORATIONS” AS FOLLOWS:

1. SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS:

=>CIVIL AIR PATROL: A 501c3 Organization representing +61,000 highly trained individuals, who are the official expansion cadre of the U.S. Air Force. They conduct the majority of air to ground Response, Search and Rescues on the mainland (up to 90 percent).

=>THE YMCA: I had a positive experience at the YMCA in my youth, and in 2014, The CDC Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response profiled the “YMCA of the USA” as capable of reaching 21 MILLION people in 10,000 communities to promote community resilience. That is >5% of the population, and if programs can be assured, then perhaps they should be considered a major partner. Recently, the YMCA provided temporary shelter during Hurricane Sandy, and their “Youth Development” programs are the target for implementing “Resilience Education.”

-

2. GENERAL READINESS OF MAJOR DOMESTIC MANUFACTURERS: those that support the U.S. war industrial base for rapid Ad Hoc up-scaling/expansion as necessary.

-

3. GENERAL READINESS OF MAJOR DOMESTIC CYBER COMPANIES: those that support defense against important emerging cyber threats, especially via satellite, forums, servers, or proxies with command and control capabilities to provide Ad Hoc expanded functions.

-

4. GENERAL READINESS OF MAJOR DOMESTIC SUPPLIERS OF FOSSEL FUELS: for Ad Hoc rapid transition from current importation practices to the domestic up-scaling/expansion of production and distribution as necessary.

-

5. GENERAL READINESS OF MAJOR DOMESTIC FOOD INDUSTRIES OR MANUFACTURERS: for Ad Hoc rapid transition from current importation practices to the domestic up-scaling/expansion of production and distribution as necessary.

-

6. GENERAL READINESS OF MAJOR DOMESTIC EMERGENCY PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS: for Ad Hoc rapid transition from current importation practices to the domestic up-scaling/expansion of production and distribution as necessary.

-

7. GENERALLY, any “single” Domestic stakeholder that has roles and responsibilities similar to The Tennessee Valley Authority, or as identified by FedScope or Dept. of Labor as a major contributor to community resilience.

-

8. GENERALLY, any “Group” Domestic stakeholder that is a major contributor to community resilience, e.g. private sector membership as “Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) Working Group” since infrastructure will underpin capability and control within our National Response Framework.

-

NOTE: The Interagency Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience, which adds to the list the following:

=>the Millennium Challenge Corporation;

=>the Office of the Director of National Intelligence;

=>the Council of Economic Advisers;

=>the National Economic Council;

=>the Domestic Policy Council;

=>the Office of Management and Budget;

=>the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs.

ASSUMPTION: I believe this group is implied to be among the originally list of stakeholders, as derived from their associated Executive Branches.
