Ability to adapt to changing conditions and prepare for, withstand, and rapidly recover from disruption.
Sample Usage: The county was able to recover quickly from the disaster because of the resilience of governmental support systems.
Extended Definition: ability of systems, infrastructures, government, business, communities, and individuals to resist, tolerate, absorb, recover from, prepare for, or adapt to an adverse occurrence that causes harm, destruction, or loss.
- According to the QHSR, ―Resilient individuals, families, and communities—and the systems that sustain them—are informed, trained, and materially and psychologically prepared to withstand disruption, absorb or tolerate disturbance, know their role in a crisis, adapt to changing conditions, and grow stronger over time.‖
- Resilience can reduce the consequences associated with an incident, event, or occurrence; resilience can also impact the likelihood of a significant incident, event, or occurrence happening at all.
