In 2010, the Citizen Corps Council was awarding the outstanding achievement for Community Collaboration. This was in recognition of the work that was done to bringing together the non-profit, faith-based, and governmental agencies to assist individuals impacted by the flooding. This effort set the groundwork for the Disaster Survivor's Advocacy Team (DSAT) that helps to ensure individuals or their families don't fall through the cracks when disasters strikes. Dennis Lewis from St. Vincent DePaul and Barbara Nelson with Pierce County Emergency Management traveled to Washington DC to receive this honor on behalf of the Council.
