This chapter discusses the context building aspect of homeland security work. These tasks involve defining hazards, identifying targets and vulnerabilities, meshing homeland security with existing concepts of emergency management and security, and creating a shared sense of community among the involved organizations. The chapter also explains that the business of determining the conceptual and practical boundaries is coupled with the need to build a community of people who could reliably come together to make these decisions and act on them.

Keywords:   homeland security, defining hazards, identifying targets, emergency management, sense of community
