Building Resilience To Disasters

The impacts of climate change are already being felt across North America increasing the frequency and intensity of hazards such as floods, wildfires, drought, extreme heat, tropical storms, melting permafrost. In a changing climate, these events are increasingly likely to strike at the same time and place, exacerbating and compounding the hazardous consequences. These hazards pose significant risks to communities, individual health and well-being, the economy, and the natural environment.

Moreover, many Indigenous communities are among the most vulnerable to climate change due to their remote and coastal locations, lack of access to Emergency Management (EM) services, and reliance on natural ecosystems. As the human and economic costs of climate disasters continue to mount, we face a choice.

We can continue to respond to disasters as they unfold or we can proactively prepare for them, mitigating the worst of the damages or avoiding them altogether. It is therefore critical that disasters be seen through the lens of reducing risk of and building resilience to disasters, rather than just a response to a one-off disaster event.

Our Mission

Our mission is to reduce disaster risk and increase the resiliency of communities by providing effective innovative technological tools that empower local resources against natural disasters such as coastal flooding, drought, earthquake, heat wave, hurricane (tropical cyclone), landslide, riverine flooding, tornado, tsunami, volcanic activity, and wildfire.

We believe, the only way we can stand a chance against ever worsening impacts of climate change is to shape true resilient communities. Having access to reliable power and water in all conditions including before, during and after disasters, are the pillars of becoming resilient. Depending on centralized utility systems which easily become impaired by disasters is a recipe for failure.

Record breaking wildfires have become the norm in past few years. A true resilient community should have some capabilities to defend itself without depending on outside world for everything. Events such as Lytton BC 2021 wildfire have proved that focusing on response alone cannot save communities in long term.

We are committed to provide climate adaptable self-sufficient resiliency solutions that can help communities achieve net-zero emissions while provide support in all phases of EM: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.


Sunact Disaster Resilience Unit (S-DRU) is a climate adaptable self-sufficient resiliency solution that can help communities achieve net-zero emissions, have access to reliable power and water independent from centralized utility systems, and provides support in all phases of EM: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.

Climate change and its impacts on the environment is an important contributing factor to natural disasters which trigger the collapse of energy infrastructure. These extreme weather events emphasize the fact that nation’s electric infrastructure is very vulnerable to long and widespread blackouts. The lingering question on the minds of most people after these long power outages brought on by natural disasters is what could have been done to prevent it.

Atmoshperic Water Generation (AWG)

Water is the primary medium through which we will feel the effects of climate change. Water availability is becoming less predictable in many places, and increased incidences of flooding threaten to destroy water points and sanitation facilities and contaminate water sources.

Wildfire Protection and Mitigation

Wildfire Protection and Mitigation

Over the past several decades, wildfire activity, damages attributed to wildfires, and costs of managing wildfires have increased substantially in North America. The total damage and cumulative economic loss for the 2021 wildfire season in US is expected to be between $70 billion and $90 billion in the U.S., with $45 billion to $55 billion of those damages to California alone.

Small Communities and Indigenous People

A simple check on “The Atlas of Canada – Remote Communities Energy Database” which is available on government of Canada website, reveals how many remote communities in Canada still don’t have access to the reliable clean source of electricity.

Our Story

The Camp Fire was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history, and the most expensive natural disaster in the world in 2018 in terms of insured losses. The Camp Fire caused at least 85 civilian fatalities and injured 12 civilians and five firefighters.It covered an area of 153,336 acres and destroyed more than 18,000 structures, with most of the destruction occurring within the first four hours. The towns of Paradise and Concow were almost completely destroyed, each losing about 95% of their structures. to $16.65 billion.

This was a wakeup call for group of experienced engineers who have been designing safety critical systems for energy and process industry for decades. We simply wondered if we could come up with an integrated new solution that could increase the resilience of communities and help emergency managers, disaster planners, first responders, and members of small/remote communities to prevent/mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters like Camp Fire California.
