EOTW #8: Community mitigation

  1. Describe one new thing you learned from this article that shows that we are working in our country to improve our resilience

Development of measures to help make structures more resilient have been made instead of only ways of protecting people in order to make it easier for communities to bounce back from a disaster situation.

2. Can you take what you learned and think of one way that your      own community might be able to increase its resilience to a likely future disaster?

The first thing that comes to mind that would affect the Fairbanks community would be wildfires. I’m not sure what steps can be taken to mitigate such disasters as a community.
