Florida Coastal Resilience Workshop
The Florida Coastal Resilience Workshop for planners and engineers is a Florida Silver Jackets initiative conducted between April and June of 2022 to increase community resilience to coastal storms and sea level rise and facilitate compliance with state laws, statutes, and requirements by providing hands-on training with tools developed by state and federal agencies to assess, communicate, and address risk to Florida communities.
Lake Martin Flood Management Study
The development of a hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) model and analysis of flood management opportunities was completed for the Lake Martin Basin in Bay County, FL. The scope of this study included defining flood risk drivers and at-risk areas within the basin, identifying potential solutions to reduce flood risk, and analyzing the effectiveness of identified measures.

Resilience Guidebooks Rural Inland Counties in Florida
The State of Florida Silver Jackets Team implemented the Inland Community Resiliency Project that supported the rural inland counties of Columbia and Highlands. The project included preparing a guidebook with proposed solutions to reduce identified risks and building a network of relationships between county emergency mangers, state agencies and federal agencies to improve resilience. Currently scaled to achieve increased community resilience at the county level, this work also serves as a pilot project that could be applied to other rural counties in Florida and across the nation.
