Resilience Response & Recovery Forum

The devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma has created significant requirements for engineers, site assessments, public health, emergency response and various other A/E/C-related capabilities. Many SAME member companies and agencies are involved in the recovery, or will be. This forum allows member companies and agencies to post requirements and capabilities they are in need of to fulfill their relief contracts, and to post calls for volunteers. Anyone can view messages. Users must login as members (link at top of page) to start a new message thread or reply to an existing one. Contact if you need technical support.

Knowledge Management Center

The Resilience Knowledge Management Center is a compilation of SAME's societal resources.

The Resilience Committee was formed in October 2016 with James Hagan, taking the lead as Chair. Formerly, The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) Council facilitated public and private sector collaboration that advances the practice and policies of regional and infrastructure security and resilience.  Our vision is secure and resilient infrastructure that supports the nation’s economy and well-being of its people.

TISP gatherd agencies, companies, associations and individuals sharing a common interest in increasing the capacity of our infrastructure to absorb or mitigate the impact of hazard events while maintaining and restoring critical services. As an SAME council with a commitment to advancing the practice and policies of regional and infrastructure resilience, TISP provides three primary functions:

Dialogue and Discovery. In physical and virtual social functions, TISP convenes its partners with overlapping interests to collaborate and coordinate. Typically, conversations reveal opportunities to build consensus, address problems needing attention and uncover potential solutions.
Relationships and Information Exchange. TISP activities include networking events, quarterly forums and conferences—such as the Critical Infrastructure Symposium (CIS), held annually in April—that bring together academia and experts to showcase the latest developments in regional and infrastructure resilience.
Transfer Knowledge and Education. One of the most important functions of the partnership is to develop resources that educate individuals on how to be more resilient and provide tools for implementing resilience strategies and programs, notably the 2011 edition of the Regional Disaster Resilience Guide.
By fostering an environment of cooperation before a disaster hits and building essential, strategic partnerships with federal, state and local governments, large and small companies, associations, academic institutions and individuals, our nation can work together in developing resilient regions and infrastructure. This type of infrastructure is necessary to ensure a strong national economy and the well-being of our citizens and visitors.
