Preparing for Hurricane Season 2016 – Things to do the Second Week of May
What is resilience?
If we turn to the dictionary, resilience is defined as:
- the ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens
- the ability of something to return to its original shape after it has been pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc.
- an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change
Resources for becoming a resilient person / community:
We can’t control when a disaster will strike. However, planning ahead has a tremendous impact on how resilient we are after a disaster event. There are many resources available to help you in your disaster planning. One resource we highly recommend is Episcopal Relief and Development’s “A Season of Resilience”. The tasks are broken down over a five-week period. Making a plan and building an emergency kit has never been so easy. Graphics for things to do during week two are found below.
