Since 1995 more than 70 BC communities have been invited to develop networks and undertake activities to work toward a Coordinated Community Response. This list of elements is a result of the independent process that communities went through in the early years to create a Coordinated Community Response. Without contact with one another, they all identified the same key elements."
