Community Disaster Recovery for Local Government

Because Community Disaster Recovery is an extremely sensitive, time critical and complex task, it is important that prior thought and planning is undertaken to prepare your Local Government to guide your community’s recovery after an emergency.

A deep understanding of recovery principles will provide a solid framework to support a resilient community during post-event recovery.

This course will demonstrate recovery group management, pre-event recovery planning processes, the benefit of engaging with your community in preparedness and resilience building activities, and an understanding of the resources available to you. It is a must for Local Governments to confidently understand and undertake the legislative responsibility to best serve their communities.
