Abstract : This report analyzes local civil preparedness organizational effectiveness. The report focuses on the nature of organizations as 'open systems,' the characteristics of organizations as systems, the organization's external environment, and external 'resource-acquisition' strategies, both primary and auxillary. The analysis examines the overall use of these strategies and their relationship to four groups of selected variables (organizational resources, characteristics of coordinators, characteristics of jurisdictions, and the environmental status of the organization).
