DisasterSmart Leadership – Leadership for a Resilient Future


Commentary •

Creating communitywide disaster resilience is a broad-based undertaking. Leaders at every level of government can promote life safety, economic stability, and overall welfare in the face of natural disasters. Putting proactive policies in place before earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and other natural disasters strike will help save lives, decrease financial losses, and ensure that communities bounce back swiftly following an event. Action ahead of disaster also can mitigate secondary impacts like fire, power outages, transportation interruption, and water contamination.
