Community Planning for Disaster Recovery
Disaster Recovery is a complex, costly, and potentially lengthy process. Depending on the scope of a disaster, recovery efforts can last years and cost millions of dollars. Planning has a direct positive impact on a community’s ability to recover from disasters. Planning for disaster recovery before disasters occur can significantly speed up and facilitate the post-disaster recovery process.
Community Planning for Disaster Recovery is an eight-hour awareness-level course that provides facilitated discussions on key concepts for disaster recovery planning, including the benefits of pre-disaster planning, key elements, and the plan development process. This course will prepare participants to initiate disaster recovery plans and participate in the long-term recovery planning process in their own communities through the review of case studies and existing disaster recovery plans.
The goal of this course is to prepare participants to evaluate and develop disaster recovery plans in the context of the Whole Community approach to planning.
Course Modules: - Introduction to Disaster Recovery Planning - Partners in Disaster Recovery - Disaster Recovery Plan Elements - Disaster Recovery Plan Development
