Community Resilience

Community Resilience

You’ve lived in your neighborhood a long time. You’ve made many lifelong friendships there. It’s where your kids went to school. It’s where you own your home. In the event of a disaster, you would want to do everything possible to rebuild your community. That’s where we come in. We are experts at engaging individuals, businesses and communities to prepare for hazards and disasters.

Post incident debriefing data from previous disasters has revealed that improvements in the area of communication would significantly enhance our national disaster relief efforts. It was found that in past disaster related activities, communication between federal, state and local governments, and volunteers and community based groups, was sadly lacking and that activities were neither collaborative nor all inclusive. Disaster and Risk Associates addresses these communication issues through community integration and outreach.

As Community Integration Specialists, we are experts at addressing disaster preparedness and recovery, utilizing the tools of improved communication and coordinated relief efforts. To that end, Disaster and Risk Associates has created a revolutionary movement titled STOP! PLAN! PREPARE! INSPIRING CHANGE TOGETHER which partners people and resources that support the response, recovery, and relief efforts within a community . This program utilizes unity meetings to address potential disasters.

We can meet with you to assess your current plan, guide you through the process of creating a new one, or help you speedily respond to a current disaster through our signature Community Integration Resilience Training (CIRT).  We’ll guide you through the recovery process in a way that serves your business or individual needs.
