The Resilience Committee has created a new forum to help facilitate collaboration across posts horizontally, and between HQ and posts vertically. We are looking to generate conversations on topical issues related to our Goal 4 of the campaign plan, and hopefully provide a fun and stimulating mode of communication addressing the full suite of Resilience topic areas. Never hesitate to let us know how we can assist YOU!

-The intent will be for a new thread posting every two weeks covering issues related to emergency preparedness/response, continuity of operations best practices, cybersecurity design, and much more. We will advertise and facilitate new threads on our linkedin page at:

-Reminder! Remember that the JETC suspense for papers is 26 January! Looking at having up to 9 Resilience Sessions so please submit your topics soon!

Our first topical forum post will be coming early next week.....looking forward to the conversation with you. Cheers!

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.
