A community’s resilience is seen in its ability to respond to, withstand, and recover from emergencies or adverse events.

The Key to being a Resilient community? WE are!

Experts recognize that when a community experiences hardship – natural disasters, weather events (ice, snow), or a hate crime, NEIGHBORS are the KEY to helping us weather the storm.

  • What does this mean for us in our community?
  • What do we need to know about our neighbors, what should they know about us?
  • What structures or organizations already exist to help tap into our neighborhood resources and grow our relationships in our local community?
  • What are the gaps?

Join experts in Emergency Planning and Management, community leaders, and storytellers to discuss these questions and more.

Resource tables, snacks, beverages and more!

Hope to see you there.

FREE – For those able, a suggested donation of $5 is requested.
