Creating District Scale Safe Havens to Support Community Resilience
Sector(s): Adaptation / Resilience / Disaster risk reduction
Boulder has already experienced multiple large-scale disruptive events that have significantly impacted the community, including the 2010 Fourmile Canyon wildfire and major floods in 2013. During these events, even new facilities specifically built to support emergency operations required additional resources to function. In response, Boulder has begun to develop a program called “Creating District Scale Safe Havens to Support Community Resilience”. Safe Havens are self-sustaining and self-contained resilience centers that can operate during emergencies. In the long term, Boulder plans to develop a network of Safe Havens; in the short term, it is aiming to bring three pilot installations online by 2020.
