The Regional Disaster Resilience Guide
The 2011 Regional Disaster Resilience (RDR) Guide for Developing an Action Plan (Guide) released in October is an updated and expanded version of the original guide published in June, 2006 by The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP). Like its predecessor, the updated guide is a beneficial and usable tool that enables practitioners and experts from government, the private sector, and other interested organizations to develop and operationalize an actionable strategy and ongoing process to collectively improve capabilities to withstand major events and disasters in today’s complex and interdependent world. The Guide is $25.00 per copy.
*Please note that the Resiliency ToolKit will be available shortly. We are in the process of re-designing the TISP website and our current site does not have the capabilities or resources to support the online toolkit. We apologize for any inconvenience.
