In order for local government to have a comprehensive emergency management program, all facets of the community, including the private business sector, must be engaged and given the opportunity to contribute. Furthermore, because neither the public sector nor the private business sector has enough expertise or resources to manage a major disaster alone being able to work collaboratively can provide an essential tool to facilitate a coordinated response. For some jurisdictions the development of a public private partnership for emergency preparedness and response has offered a conduit for such collaboration. This thesis examines the challenges to building public private partnerships between the government and the private business sector. Through interviews with subject matter experts this research identifies the four most critical factors local government must address when contemplating the development of a public private partnership. A cross disciplined approach and incentives are offered to local government as recommendations to facilitate partnership building.
