Resilience conversation starters……


  • What does resilience mean to you?
  • What does community connectedness mean to you?
  • Tell me about your community? What do you really like or value about your community? What is unique about your community?
  • What are the strengths of your community?
  • What are some of the challenges or vulnerabilities that your community faces?
  • Who are the most vulnerable members of your community? What examples are there of them being supported and included?
  •  What are the past emergency events that have affected your community? What went well in how your community worked together to support each other? What could your community do differently next time based on things that did not go well?
  • What information do you and your community need to feel more confident to be able to support itself in an emergency?
  • Does your community have a place/ or places they would feel safe to go in an emergency to support each other and get information about what to do?


Key Safety Messages to share with your community: 


  • Get to know your neighbour; it’s all about being connected and helping each other out. In an emergency, check on your neighbour, especially those who might need extra support, or let others know if you need help.
