TALLAHASSEE, Fla. , Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2022 National Disaster Resilience Conference (NDRC22) opens in one week on Tuesday, November 8, in Clearwater Beach and will bring together the leading voices in the disaster resilience movement to chart the future of resilient building, codes, policies, products, and recovery.

Next week, we will explore the science, policies, and tools that save lives and protect homes in disaster events.

Register today to hear from the nation's foremost resilience experts on panels such as Leadership Voices in Media and Weather, FEMA's Building Codes in Action ? A Federal Perspective, the National Initiative to Advance Building Codes roundtable, and much more.

"Next week, we will convene the best minds in the disaster resilience movement to explore the science, policies, and tools that save lives and protect homes in disaster events," said Leslie Chapman-Henderson, President and CEO of the nonprofit Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH). "Large-scale disasters like Hurricane Ian bring massive recovery efforts that last for years and often decades. At NDRC22, we have the opportunity to both support a resilient recovery from Hurricane Ian and explore and improve resilient building practices before the next disaster comes."
