You are invited to participate in a Silver Jackets Webinar Tuesday Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. EST
Stephen Cauffman, a research engineer with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will present a webinar on the "NIST Community Resilience Guides and Activities." The webinar will provide background on the motivation for community resilience and approach NIST is taking in its community resilience program. The focus of the webinar will be to introduce the Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Infrastructure Systems, a six-step planning process for community resilience. The webinar will also introduce the companion Economic Decision Guide, that allows for competing projects to be evaluated not only on their contribution to improved resilience, but also co-benefits that can be derived during normal conditions.
The presentation will be approximately 45 minutes followed by questions. Please invite other Silver Jacket team members and interested parties to hear about state-of-the-art approaches to building resilience from an experienced, dynamic speaker.
The Silver Jackets team will announce soon whether ASFPM approved a 1 hour of continuing education credit available for Certified Floodplain Manager.
