SENATE NEEDS COMMITMENT TO ENFORCE LAW BEFORE FERC CONFIRMATION VOTE

(For more information, see the July 14, 204 press release on our Press Releases page.)


The Foundation for Resilient Societies is dedicated to cost-effective protection of technologically-advanced societies from infrequently occurring natural and man-made disasters. Our current area of emphasis is protection of the U.S. electric grid and also protection of nuclear power plants during long-term loss of outside commercial grid power. Our primary mission is scientific research and education. We are not a grass-roots, membership-based organization.


Our staff includes both technical and legal experts with dozens of years of experience in critical infrastructure protection and continuity of government issues. We distinguish ourselves from other organizations by the depth of our technical and legal research.


Please take a bit more time to learn about our organization by visiting our InitiativesIn the News, and About Us web pages.
