“Resilience is the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to adverse events. Enhanced resilience allows better anticipation of disasters and better planning to reduce disaster losses—rather than waiting for an event to occur and paying for it afterward.” (National Research Council)
Improving resilience should be seen as a long-term process, but it can be coordinated around measurable short-term goals that will allow communities to better prepare and plan for, withstand, recover from, and adapt to adverse events. (Disaster Resilience: A National Imperative; the National Academies Press, 2012).
Ensure appropriate plans: Small Community Emergency Response Plan (SCERP), Continuity of Operations (COOP), and Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) exist and are current.
Train and exercise your plans to expose gaps or weaknesses in the plan.
Conduct Risk Assessment
Identify Hazards - which hazards might impact your community?
Profile hazards events - how bad can it get?
Frequency - likelihood
Magnitude - strength
Extent - location
Inventory assets - which community assets will be affected by the hazards?
Estimate losses - what are the costs associated with the impacts?
Identify realistic Mitigation projects to eliminate or reduce the effects of a disaster.
Add redundancies to critical systems (Water, Sewer, Power, and Fuel delivery) to improve availability to restore capacity.
Create shared common objectives that have all communal elements (City, Tribe, Corporation) working towards similar goals, which enhances coordination and communication, leading to increased project completion.
NOAA, U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit
: Tools are available to help you manage your climate-related risks and opportunities, and to help guide you in building resilience to extreme events.
: Established with a specific focus on promoting rural development, and providing power generation, transition facilities, modern communication systems, water and sewer systems and other infrastructure needs in rural Alaska.
Alaska Division of Community and Regional Affairs (DCRA), Community Resilience & Climate Adaptation Programs
: DCRA's Community Resilience and Climate Adaptation Programs provide Alaskan communities with technical assistance, tools, training and funding to become healthier, stronger and more resilient to natural hazards and to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHS&EM), Grants Section
: you will find the list of grants that DHS&EM administers.
: Provides a common website for federal agencies to post discretionary funding opportunities and for grantees to find and apply to them. Grants.gov allows organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities from all Federal grant-making agencies. Grants.gov is THE single access point for over 900 grant programs offered by the 26 Federal grant-making agencies.
General Services Administration (GSA), Sam.gov
: The GSA manages federal acquisition and awards processes in 10 online websites which are now being merged into one. This site will become the official U.S. government website for people who make, receive, and manage federal awards.
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Resilience
: FEMA Resilience aims to build a
culture of preparedness
through insurance, mitigation, preparedness, continuity, and grant programs. The organization includes the
