About Us

CARRI believes that a community’s resilience is measured by its sustained ability to prepare for, respond to, and fully bounce back from a variety of crises. The events of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the 2012 wildfires, and the BP oil spill each posed unique challenges and exposed different areas of vulnerability in our communities and in our nation. CARRI strengthens our national resilience by assisting communities in understanding their vulnerability, taking positive collective actions to limit the impact of disruptive crisis, and recovering rapidly from disaster of all kinds
