Decision-makers looking to protect communities against natural and manmade disasters
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) released a new online toolkit, Pathways to Resilient Communities. This clearinghouse of available technical tools and resources is designed for community leaders looking to improve the built environment’s ability to respond to increasingly severe storms and other threats to vertical and horizontal infrastructure.
The toolkit summarizes the difference between codes, standards, and manuals of practice, and denotes where local leaders can take action to ensure the resources are implemented. The resource also features ASCE’s hazard-specific standards for threats to the built environment by region, including flooding, earthquakes, wind, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, and winter weather.
“Civil engineers are trusted to protect the safety and health of the public through the construction and maintenance of infrastructure systems people rely on every day,” said Maria Lehman, ASCE President. “This new toolkit will help decision-makers understand why modern codes and standards matter when improving current infrastructure and building for a more resilient future.”
