When communities decide to become more resilient, they need an approach that helps them identify and prioritize options consistent with their goals. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Physical Infrastructure Systems helps communities do that, by focusing on the role of the built environment in enabling the community to rapidly recover from disruption. It provides a clear process for communities to better prepare for the future. The following stories are prime examples of how the NIST Community Resilience Group is helping communities across the country prepare for a more resilient future.
