Building Resilient Communities: An Online Training

holding hands in a circle
Emergency preparedness can get a community through the first few days following a disaster. But how does a community bounce back over the long term?
With disasters becoming more common and costly, and with some areas enduring overlapping disasters, the importance of building community resilience has never been greater.
As a business, nonprofit, faith-based organization, or other community organization, you bring valuable assets to supporting overall community recovery.
RAND's new easy-to-use, self-guided online training can help your community strengthen its resilience. Your organization can use the training to build its own resilience, too.
Resilience means:
·         mitigating and withstanding the stress of manmade and natural disasters
·         recovering in a way that restores normal functioning
·         applying lessons learned from past responses to better withstand future incidents.
When your organization or community completes this training, you will have a real action plan that will help build resilience, bolstering capacity to respond to and recover from disaster.
