Recovery from disasters has become a major focus for communities across Texas and the nation following recent disasters. Recovery is a shared endeavor between government (local, state, and federal), local long-term recovery groups and additional non-profit, faith-based, and community-based organizations, the private sector, and other partners. Not only can communities plan for disasters, they can also plan for recovery.
This workshop aims to address best practices and challenges related to disaster recovery, stress the importance of collaboration among emergency management professionals and agencies that are involved in recovery, and to help jurisdictions, agencies, and organizations develop or improve their recovery plans.
