Building Disaster-Resilient Places

A companion to FEMA's Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 101, ReadyCommunity provides a process to help guide the work of local communities in planning for a disaster. Facilitated by a neutral coach, the initiative fosters broad civic participation, creates links to needed assets and resources within the community, and supplies current data to help guide the planning process.

Current pilot efforts are taking place in Montana, Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Washington, and North Dakota.
