Recovery Information

Emergency or disaster recovery includes actions taken to repair, build and recover from the effects of an emergency or disaster event so the community can return to normal functional capacity as quickly as possible. Where the event has been severe, a disaster recovery program may be implemented which can include the provision of disaster financial assistance for personal and small business. The extent of the work and assistance that may be required is dependent on the severity of the disaster. General plans, recovery procedures and assistance guidelines need to be developed and shared prior to an event to assist planners, responders and victims in the preparedness and response phases.
