Comments Requested on Draft Interagency Concept for
Community Resilience Indicators and National-level Progress Measures

FEMA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and their federal
partners in the Mitigation Federal Leadership Group (MitFLG) Disaster
Resilience Indicators Subcommittee released a “Draft
Interagency Concept for Community Resilience Indicators and National-Level
Progress Measures.”

This concept is the result of a year-long effort to identify potential
indicators of community resilience capacity building that align with the Mitigation
and Recovery Core Capabilities under the National Preparedness Goal. Learn more
details about this joint FEMA/NOAA initiative here www.fema.gov/community-resilience-indicators.

The document, compiled in response to broad public interest in
identifying key factors of community resilience nationwide in order to promote
better-informed capacity building strategies, is intended to start a broad
conversation among public- and private-sector stakeholders on how best to
define and track improvements in community resilience capacity across 28 key
indicator categories.

ASFPM Mitigation Pod Facilitator Tim Trautman is urging flood risk
professionals and all interested stakeholders to submit comments. You can send
Trautman a copy of your comments for consideration in ASFPM’s submittal no
later than Aug. 5
at at tim.trautman@mecklenburgcountync.gov. Or submit feedback directly to the MitFLG subcommittee at FEMA-CommunityResilience@fema.dhs.gov by Aug. 15.
