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

It is essential for Local Governments to confidently understand and undertake the legislative responsibility to best serve their communities. A thorough understanding of recovery principles provides 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.
