Comments Requested on Draft Interagency Concept for Community Resilience Indicators and National-level Progress Measures

FEMA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and their federal partners in the Mitigation Federal Leadership Group (MitFLG) Disaster Resilience Indicators Subcommittee released a "Draft Interagency Concept for Community Resilience Indicators and National-Level Progress Measures."

This concept is the result of a year-long effort to identify potential indicators of community resilience capacity building that align with the Mitigation and Recovery Core Capabilities under the National Preparedness Goal. Learn more details about this joint FEMA/NOAA initiative here www.fema.gov/community-resilience-indicators.

The document, compiled in response to broad public interest in identifying key factors of community resilience nationwide in order to promote better-informed capacity building strategies, is intended to start a broad conversation among public- and private-sector stakeholders on how best to define and track improvements in community resilience capacity across 28 key indicator categories.

ASFPM Mitigation Pod Facilitator Tim Trautman is urging flood risk professionals and all interested stakeholders to submit comments. You can send Trautman a copy of your comments for consideration in ASFPM's submittal no later than Aug. 5 at at tim.trautman@mecklenburgcountync.gov. Or submit feedback directly to the MitFLG subcommittee at FEMA-CommunityResilience@fema.dhs.gov by Aug. 15.
