The Bay Area Urban Areas Security Initiative

Community Resiliency & Recovery

Community Resiliency & Recovery refers to a community’s potential to withstand, adapt to, and recover from adversity such as a terrorist attack or natural disaster.

Prepared communities help prevent or minimize the loss or damage to life, property, and the environment. The challenge has been to identify the priorities and resources needed to return citizens to their homes, reopen businesses, and restore other essential services needed for a full and timely recovery.

The Bay Area UASI has been instrumental in using a “whole community” approach to enhance resiliency and recovery capabilities. By developing public/private partnerships and alliances, toolkits and templates for emergency management officials, and conducting trainings and exercises, the program has increased the region’s ability to manage adversity.
