What We Do

Empowering local and regional resiliency through cross-sector partnerships and information sharing

Connecting people and organizations to facilitate regional resiliency coordination and planning.

Sharing curated information, tools, and resources via a dynamic distribution list so members can spend their time using information instead of trying to find it.

Serving as a nexus between the sectors to champion cross-sector understanding and collaboration.

The California Resiliency Alliance (CRA) is a 501C(3) non-profit sitting at the nexus between the public and private sectors facilitating cross-sector information sharing and partnerships to empower local and regional resilience.

Membership is open to to professionals with operational or organizational resiliency responsibilities. Our members come from diverse professional fields, span the private, public, and NGO sectors, and have various geographical areas of responsibility.

The CRA’s information sharing spans:

All Hazards: The CRA’s communications span active shooter threats, black sky long term power outages, bomb threats & IEDs, climate change, cyber, dam failure, drought and water shortages, earthquakes, EMP and space weather threats, extreme heat, extremism & terrorism, floods, hurricanes / topical storms, hybrid threats, insider threats, pandemics & infectious diseases, social / civil unrest & riots, tsunamis, vehicle attacks, volcanoes, wildfires, and more.

Other Resilience Topics: In addition to hazard specific information the CRA also shares information on other resilience related topics such as critical infrastructures, economic & long term recovery, emergency communications, foresight, mass evacuations, physical security, and supply chain resilience.

To help align communications with member interests the CRA uses a dynamic distribution list based on member profiles. Once a membership application is accepted you will receive an email to complete a CRA member profile that allows you select your own areas of interest including hazards/threats, infrastructures, and counties. Learn more about how this list works on the CRA’s Dynamic Distribution List Overview Page.
