Resilience is the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and thrive no matter what kinds of acute shocks (a sudden, extreme event that threatens a community) or chronic stressors (long-term pressures that weaken the fabric of a community over time) they experience.

Working collaboratively within and across the community, the City of Mobile set our vision of a Resilient Mobile as one that ensures all members of our community are poised to thrive in the face of increasing challenges and changes in our environment, climate, and economy.
