City asking citizens to participate in Resilient Cities survey
The City of Dallas is seeking feedback from citizens on factors that affect our community’s resilience to emergencies. Citizens can participate anonymously by taking the 100 Resilient Cities survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FWR8ZCT.
The city is currently in stage one of a three-stage information gathering process to determine the state of the City’s resilience-building priorities. “Building a strong, resilient Dallas is the best thing we can do today to leave our children a better future,” said Chief Resilience Officer Theresa O’Donnell.
The City of Dallas was selected to join the 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) program in 2014. 100RC is a program, pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation purposed to help cities prepare for and thrive after a sudden shock such as an earthquake, or a long term community stress, such as drought or homelessness.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said by winning the 100 Resilient Cities Challenge, the City is now part of a network of urban centers that will be better prepared to respond to 21st century challenges.
