So far in 2018, there have been significant events and weather conditions that have highlighted the importance of community resilience. The more organised a community is, the more resilient it can be to the impacts of an emergency situation. Communities can also plan for adverse events in advance and be aware of the potential impacts. Setting up community groups who work together to provide local residents with information on emergency events and how to respond, are also useful for increasing resilience, for example, information could be in the form of flood advice or a community emergency plan.
