We enhance resilience by:
- Encouraging communication and information sharing to allow for strategic and aggressive interventions NOW to minimize future risks
- Coordinating efforts among organizations to increase our effectiveness in preparing for chronic coastal hazards and episodic natural disasters
- Engaging across geographies, sectors, organizations and boundaries to create a unified strategy for adverse events and conditions
The Charleston region is a dynamic environment, vulnerable to a number of coastal and natural hazards. The rapid growth of the region places additional stress on the natural and man-made systems we rely on for day-to-day life and during emergencies. Integrated planning and strategic intervention is critical to the region’s ability to absorb and recover from chronic and catastrophic events.
