This paper highlights resilient behaviour and responses taken by the community and some companies to cope with the difficulties arisen from the 2010 Maule earthquake in Chile, during the emergency period and the reconstruction process. It is based on recent publications from the authors as well as the revision and analysis of other case studies regarding the response of both communities and businesses to the consequences of the disaster. Different scales are involved in the analysis, from families to neighbours, from cities to regions. It systematizes practices to motivate local and national authorities to learn from these experiences an also to see both communities and companies as partners in preparing cities for future events, increasing urban resilience.
