In May 2022, we adopted our first ever resilience plan – the Resilience Hazard Assessment(PDF, 31MB)

Our Resilience Hazard Assessment (RHA) was developed using extensive data and insights from multiple sources to deeply understand our community and how we can help build community resilience in order to adapt, survive and thrive in good time and bad.
