Washington State Fusion Center and the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region: Building a Critical Infrastructure/Key Resource Information Sharing Capability

The Seattle UASI Region--consisting of King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties--was chosen as the pilot area for this initiative to utilize the stakeholder relationships already developed through the Puget Sound Partnership for Regional Infrastructure Security.
