Building internal resilience and preparedness in the case of emergency
The best time to prepare for an emergency is before it happens. Many Hawai'i Island businesses and organizations have a desire to help the community when disaster strikes, but it can be difficult to get accurate information and respond in a timely and effective way. Some businesses may get more requests than they can field, while others may be left wanting to help but not knowing what to do.
Hawai'i Island will benefit from a centralized, coordinated emergency response from the private and nonprofit sector.
The Resilience Alliance is a network of Hawai'i Island non-governmental organizations and businesses committed to building internal resilience and preparedness in the case of emergency. In times of crisis, it mobilizes to support the Hawai'i Island community by facilitating communication and distribution of resources to affected community members.
Membership is free. Participating businesses and organizations receive:
Employee training, access to best practices, and support in planning with regard to emergency preparedness;
Vetting and logistics for donation requests and opportunities to contribute to ensure your efforts are streamlined and making the greatest impact;
