Resources for AIA Components

When disasters strike, the most effective response and recovery efforts are coordinated at the local level. The AIA Disaster Assistance and Resilience program relies on AIA State and Local Component engagement to be most effective and has a network of Disaster Assistance Coordinators in states throughout the US. Without the dedicated volunteers who seek out training and build relationships with emergency managers, the AIA would be incapable of responding during times of crisis.
