Who We Are
The Community Resilience Organization of Hartford (CROH) is a team of Town residents, organizations and staff working together to strengthen the Hartford community’s ability to deal with natural and man-made disasters. Hartford is one of six towns in Vermont participating in a statewide CRO pilot program.
Resilience is the ability of people in communities to come together to solve problems. To become resilient involves education on every level, and relies on projects and activities which bring people together to work, interact, and get to know and trust each other.
Hartford has an Emergency Response Plan and a Hazard Mitigation Plan. These are important, but our success in being prepared to respond to natural and man-made disasters also involves being more resilient and self sufficient as a community. The more you are involved, the more creative and successful we will be.
The first project is to get community input on how we can best build our resilience – the ability for the Hartford community to come together and address whatever disasters come our way. Look for the CROH “Idea Boards” around Town or submit an idea using the Online Form. On the First Friday of every month, starting in July ,a new question will be posted.
