WashingtonFIRST Coalition (Revision Proposed)
The Coalition Charter has been updated as shown in black below. For comparison the original has been included in gray below the new text.
WashingtonFIRST is a coalition of financial sector institutions operating in Washington State, collaborating with one another to identify risk and improve the resiliency of our members and our communities.
WashingtonFIRST serves as an investment in the event of a crisis, insuring that we are collaborating with one another, the public sector, and other critical infrastructure sectors at all levels. WashingtonFIRST provides a unique forum for local and regional preparedness and enhanced resiliency as well as being part of a national network of partner coalitions.

“A crisis is no time to exchange business cards.”
The coalition was formed in 2006 as the Pacific Northwest Regional Coalition for Financial Services. Over 20 financial institutions currently participate.
