Mississippi Gulf Coast

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Alliance for Response provides support for Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties. The kick-off forum brought together first responders and cultural heritage leaders to explain response priorities and methods, and design ways to ensure the best possible outcomes for collecting institutions in emergencies. The network will aim to build and strengthen local and regional emergency response.
