AWR228 - Community Resilience: Building Resilience from the Inside Out
Date & Times
May 14, 2020 from 8 AM - 5 PM
Description

This one-day awareness-level training course aims to increase the awareness of the meaningful actions that a community can take to enhance resilience to natural hazards and opportunities to incorporate these actions into professional practice. Building community resilience requires a Whole Community Approach engaging the full capacity of the private and nonprofit sectors, including nongovernmental organizations and the general public, in conjunction with the participation of federal, state, and local governmental partners. The instructional goals of the training are to: 1) Increase knowledge and understanding of risks from natural hazards in the community; 2) Increase understanding of the impacts of natural hazards on community systems; 3) Provide knowledge and understanding about community resilience (CR) and how CR can benefit hazard planning including practices to enhance CR at the local level; and 4) Introduce participants to resources and tools that will help them identify the various components of risk to natural hazards and to identify strategies for integrating CR into existing plans and programs that are appropriate for their community. The course is intended for a range of organizations that have a role to play in increasing awareness of hazards, preparedness, mitigation, and recovery, in order to generate greater community resilience to hazards.
