Military Installation Resilience: What Does it Mean? [January 6, 2021]   [open pdf - 889KB]

From the Document: "A misunderstanding that sometimes occurs when discussing military installations and resilience is the distinction between the Department of Defense's (DOD's) general responsibilities to ensure military installations are resilient and its statutory responsibility to provide 'military installation resilience.' [...] The statutory definition focuses exclusively on those environmental threats that can impact military installations. At the same time, DOD generally takes a more comprehensive approach to ensuring military installations are resilient. This difference in connotation can result in misconceptions of certain resilience-related statutory requirements for military installations."
