Course Description
FEMA Certified

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.

The goal of this course is to increase awareness of the meaningful actions that you and your community can take to enhance resilience to natural hazards and opportunities to incorporate resilience into professional practice.
