Controlling Our Own Destiny

Published: October 2009

BCLC's latest report, Controlling Our Own Destiny: Proactive Steps for Resilient Communities is a compilation of stories and best practices from practitioners in the disaster field and from individuals that found themselves in the midst of disaster situations. Organized into three chapters, the report catalogs the latest thinking in making our communities more resilient to the risks they face every day. Destiny is not a word that is often used in disaster assistance parlance, but the lessons from this report will help us move from a nation that is reactive to disasters to one that is proactive and able to control our own destiny.

Learn from experts from Abbott, Accenture Foundation, Allstate Insurance Company, American Red Cross, ExxonMobil, FEMA, IBM Corporation, NOAA, Office Depot Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Small Business Administration, and more.
