Vice Chair
InfraGard National Members Alliance - National Disaster Resilience CouncilVice Chair
Dec. 2014The InfraGard National Disaster Resilience Council’s (NDRC) is a subgroup of approximately 2,000 volunteers out of the larger FBI-InfraGard membership of approximately 80,000. Its mission is to assess and understand high risk infrastructure vulnerabilities. Further, the NDRC is chartered to assess the interdependencies of interrelated infrastructure components and potential cascading failures that could be possible. As such, the NDRC primarily focusses on the electric grid as the underlying infrastructure. The NDRC provides and facilitates information for key stakeholders and communities regarding these risks and approaches to mitigate the high-impact threat of long-term power and communications failure (greater than 30 days), which could lead to catastrophic, cascading losses of life-sustaining and business-sustaining infrastructures and resources for recovery. Its purpose is to foster communications and coordination that will address and mitigate the threat of a simultaneous nationwide or regional collapse of infrastructure from any hazard such as man-made electromagnetic pulse (EMP) or other intentional or naturally occurring hazard. Mr. Volandt volunteers as the NDRC Vice Chair. In this leadership role he is active in fund raising and has established working groups such as the Electrical Grid Predictive Risk Simulation working group, the Household Readiness in support of Business Continuity working group (and accompanying training program), co-leads the NDRC annual national conference, was instrumental in the selection of Joint Base San Antonio by the DoD, DOE, and DHS for cutting edge infrastructure resilience pilot work, and the publishing of two important books on critical infrastructure resilience (available on Amazon): • Powering Through: From Fragile Infrastructures To Community Resilience • Powering Through: Building Critical Infrastructure Resilience
