Resilient Communities are the Foundations of a Resilient America.

CARRI Community Specific Publications

CARRI piloted the Community Resilience System (CRS) in seven communities to empower them to create a vision for the future and establish the necessary actions to improve overall resilience to disasters and other disturbances. The CRS was piloted in communities where leaders and citizens were committed to engaging the full fabric of their society to foster preparedness and resilience: Anaheim, California; Anne Arundel County and Annapolis, Maryland; Charleston and the Tri-County Area, South Carolina; Gadsden, Alabama; Greenwich, Connecticut; The Mississippi Gulf Coast; and Mount Juliet, Tennessee. The CRS provided a web-based set of tools to make resilience knowledge available to a wide array of diverse communities. The reports below summarize lessons learned from these communities.
