2012 ANNUAL NEDRIX CONFERENCE
Strengthening Regional Resilience: A “Whole Community” Approach
October 22-24 at the Hyatt Regency in Newport RI
NEDRIX Members,The effects of natural and manmade disasters have become more frequent, far-reaching, and widespread across—even here in theNorth East. As a result, preserving the safety, security, and prosperity of all parts of our society is becoming more challenging. OurNation’s traditional approach to managing the risks associated with these disasters relies heavily on the government. However,today’s changing reality is affecting government and industry alike in their efforts to improve resilience while grappling with thelimitations of their capabilities. Even in small- and medium-sized disasters, which the government is generally effective at managing,significant access and service gaps still exist. In large-scale disasters or catastrophes, government resources and capabilities can beoverwhelmed, which is why NEDRIX serves as a connection between the public and private sectors where critical infrastructurepartners are encouraged to support statewide all-hazards disaster planning formed at the state and federal level.
