Guide for an Action Plan to Develop Regional Disaster Resilience

The Guide offers key definitions and common assumptions that support regional disaster resilience. Using a simple, practical "how-to" approach, it lists twelve categories of typical "needs" gleaned from lessons learned in previous catastrophes. It further recommends short and long-term activities to address preparedness gaps. Many of the activities are time efficient and low cost.

Citizen Corps is FEMA's grassroots strategy to bring together government and community leaders to involve citizens in all-hazards emergency preparedness and resilience. Citizen Corps asks you to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared; to get training in first aid and emergency skills; and to volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief, and community safety.
