Resilience and prevention works off of each other. Prevention is not always a solution some things just can't be prevented. Resilience is capable of withstanding a shock without losing its basic functions. Another point is that resilience is a way of adapting to a current situation, and another property of a resilient system is being able to transform to another way of life when the current situation has changed. In the article building resilience for children describes resilience as a way of bouncing back. In order for this to happen they have to have a plan in effect early on so they can withstand in a fit manner. The author also explained that rubber bends when stressed but bounces back to its original shape and position.
A resilience assessment is a way of understanding the dynamics of a system, understanding how the system has changed throughout time and to see how it might change in the future. The reason for accessing resilience is to identify multiple stable states. Resilience occurs when all other preventive measures have failed or halted. Prevention is the course that someone takes for stopping something bad from happening. Applying preventative measures is a way for you to communicate and educate people on the importance of certain techniques used to prevent the spread of disease. In the clip on preparing for disaster you can't put preventative measures in effect. I think resilience would be the outcome because you can never predict how bad weather conditions might be. It is a good ideal for the Red Cross to educate people on what to do when in this sort of situation but just like when Hurricane Katrina came those people had to adapt to the current situation and try to rebuild even if it meant moving to another state to start a new life. The Federal Emergency Management Agency stepped on the scene to assist in a healthy manner.
When disasters occur we as a people have to remember to reach back to the community because this is where we get out aid from. Green Cross encourages people to be aware of the history of weather in the region that you live in. They also want you to figure out a way to protect your family and your personal belongings when disaster breaks out. They also have a website where you can go to explain to others the location of your home and how to protect it in that sort of environment. This site helps with information on where the emergency shelters are at and it provides you with a blueprint on how to come up with and emergency evacuation.This is how you create a personal preparedness plan.
