This course aims to inform participants of the meaningful actions that a community can take to enhance resilience to natural hazards and of the opportunities to incorporate these actions into professional practice. The course provides understanding about community resilience (CR) and how it can benefit hazard planning including practices of how community resilience can be enhanced at the local level. The course will increase participant knowledge and understanding of potential community risks from natural hazards and the impacts of natural hazards on community systems. Participants will be introduced to resources and tools that can assist to identify the various components of risk to natural hazards and to identify strategies for integrating community resilience into existing plans and programs that are appropriate for their community.
Resilient communities are better able to plan for and take action to mitigate the risks from hazards, increase the pace of recovery from destructive events, and adapt to changing environments.
This course demonstrates how to integrate risk and community-based collaborative strategies into plans and programs and introduces tools that help communities assess individual risks and vulnerabilities as well as introduces strategies to become more resilient and better prepared for natural disasters..
This one-day training course will provide state and local government agency staff and other stakeholder groups with background on natural hazards. In addition, the course will guide an approach to (1) assess community resilience and (2) develop next steps for improved resilience. Through increased awareness of natural hazards and best practices, the course will enhance community resilience for state and local government agency staff that routinely interface with the community, private sector, and other stakeholder groups. The course will be designed for national implementation, while allowing integration of local concerns through case studies and focused group exercises
