This resident course is designed for local disaster recovery teams
consisting of emergency managers, city/county administrators, public
works directors, building inspectors, and community planners. The course
focuses on the roles and responsibilities of each team member, and
provides guidance on developing a local disaster recovery plan. Best
practices in disaster recovery are summarized in a toolkit included in
the course materials. Participants are given the opportunity to develop
an outline of their own recovery plan during the course.
• Better understand local community responsibilities and challenges associated with disaster recovery.
• Discuss "lessons learned" in disaster recovery at the local level.
• Develop and implement a pre-disaster recovery plan.
