When it comes to natural and man-made disasters and emergencies, various levels of government continue to seek ways to better define and redefine the concepts of “whole community” and “resilience.”
While these concepts are not new, increasing numbers of state and federally declared disasters, greater damage and destruction, plus skyrocketing costs of cleanup, are placing a greater urgency on having those concepts better developed, more understood, and broadly accepted and adopted. Booz Allen Hamilton seeks to help reinforce those concepts by promoting mutually agreed upon definitions and developing mechanisms to measure progress toward helping the nation achieve greater resiliency.
The shift in real and perceived roles of government in preparedness is fueling the urgency for the responsibility of preventing, protecting, mitigating, responding to, and recovering from these events. Even though states and local jurisdictions are working hard to develop their own capabilities, a public view has emerged that the US federal government is the ultimate cavalry for rescuing devastated communities— that federal authorities will rush in and provide whatever resources are needed in order to restore normalcy. This is compounded by an escalation of approved pre- and post-disaster declarations, which have increased the costs to the federal government, and at a time when the nation can least afford it.
“Our nation’s ability to withstand and recover quickly from major disasters and emergencies is about a collective responsibility for making our communities, and ultimately the nation, more secure.”
By refining the concepts of "whole community" and "resilience," the nation can better withstand and recover quickly from major disasters and emergencies.
