This infographic illustrates how communities can withstand and recover from disasters by building resiliency.
Emergency preparedness can get you through the first few days following a disaster. But how can your community bounce back over the long term?
With disasters becoming more common and costly, and with some areas enduring multiple disasters, the importance of building community resilience has never been greater.
RAND's easy-to-use, self-guided online training shows organizations and communities how to strengthen their resilience. Resilience means:
- mitigating and withstanding the stress of manmade and natural disasters;
- recovering in a way that restores normal functioning; and
- applying lessons learned from past responses to better withstand future incidents.
