Resilience Playbook

Local officials, businesses, and residents that want to make their communities more resilient to hazard events – natural or otherwise – can now access a straightforward, action-oriented guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

This 50-page NIST Playbook identifies key actions communities of any size can take to better position themselves to deal with potential hazards. It also complements the two-volume NIST Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Physical Infrastructure Systems produced in 2015 that is used by communities and professionals in a variety of ways.

While the Guide recognizes communities must prioritize their limited resources, and that improving resilience is a process achieved over time; the companion Playbook helps communities follow the Guide’s six-step process, including setting community-scale goals, aligning priorities and resources, identifying key stakeholders, and developing plans for recovery of community functions.
