Resiliency – The Commitment to Community

2016 Resiliency – The Commitment to Community – Connecting the Dots



 The Commitment to Community

Technically, resiliency is “the ability of a system and its component parts to anticipate, absorb, accommodate, or recover from the effects of a hazardous event in a timely and efficient manner, including through ensuring the preservation, restoration, or improvement of its essential basic structures and functions.” Source

Less formally, “The ability to deal with change and continue to develop.” Or “Resilience is the capacity of a system to continually change and adapt yet remain within critical thresholds.” Source
