When disaster hits, the urgency of the initial response often prevents us from planning for the longer recovery phase. This is the challenge in recovery planning. How can we re-establish vital services to the community while also improving organizational and community resilience? Planning for recovery BEFORE disaster strikes helps to establish partnerships, roles, and key priorities to address in a post-disaster environment.
This course provides an overview of the recovery planning process, in both a pre-disaster and post-disaster context. Participants will review current guidance and best practices in recovery planning, along with a summary of key planning activities for public health, healthcare, and social service organizations.
