Description

Creating Resilient Communities

“Supporting Each Other Before, During and After a Crisis”

Recent events at Westminster Bridge, Borough Market, Parsons Green, Grenfell Tower, and Las Vegas demonstrate that a tragic incident can happen at any time and anywhere. Such incidents can adversely affect our lives and those of people around us. What has changed is the scale, scope and range of threats, which due to our interconnected world can impact an ever-greater number of people and communities.

Incidents which adversely impact our businesses and communities are not restricted to terrorist attacks but include flooding, fire, hacking of personal data and cyberattacks. We need a better approach to preparing, surviving and recovering from a crisis.

Alchemmy, London First and Dogfi.sh are pleased to present ‘Creating Resilient Communities’ on October 30th at 17:00. Sponsored by Fieldfisher and supported by CSSC (Cross-Sector Safety and Security Communications), the event will bring together experts in a variety of resilience specialties including crisis management, cybersecurity, safety and the emergency services. The aim is to facilitate wide-ranging debate, as well as presentations and questions and answers.

The question that this event poses is what makes communities resilient. It is no longer sufficient to rely solely on individual or narrow organisational resources to cope with major threats and hazards. They require a collective and co-ordinated response that involves the widest possible range of people in a local area – retailers, residents, office workers, utility suppliers, emergency responders, hoteliers, etc. These people need to come together in a community engagement that will produce a meaningful response – before, during and after any disruption.

Please come and join the debate.
