Webinars & Presentations

Building Cultures of Preparedness

The webinar highlights the findings and recommendations contained in a report published by the FEMA Higher Education Program titled "Building Cultures of Preparedness" (pdf, 4.5 MB). The report suggests that a culture-based approach to the community and household level preparedness goals laid out in FEMA's 2018-2022 Strategic Plan can help us achieve the nation's new resilience goals. The webinar discusses the demands of our distinctive and heterogeneous local environments and the ways in which the resilience we desire will have to be built one community at a time. Four guiding principles to implement successful strategies to build cultures of preparedness are described as well as example applications.
