Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Infrastructure Systems, Volume II



Therese P. McAllister


The CRPG provides a methodology for local government to bring together all of the relevant stakeholders to establish performance goals to maintain the social and economic fabric when disruptive events occur; in other words, to be resilient. The CRPG is intended to support long-term community planning. The methodology is focused on the role that buildings and infrastructure play in assuring that social and economic functions are able to resume in a manner that does not result in detrimental impacts after a disruptive event. When catastrophic events occur, the community will have plans in place to rebuild in a thoughtful way to be better prepared for future events, including coordination with state and federal agencies as outlined in the National Preparedness Goal. The CPRG supports the National Preparedness Goal by providing planning guidance at the local level to support achieving the outcome of community resilience.
