The effects of natural and manmade disasters have become more frequent, far-reaching and widespread. As a result, preserving the safety, security and prosperity of all parts of our society is becoming more challenging. Our nation’s traditional approach to managing the risks associated with these disasters relies heavily on the government. However, today’s changing reality is affecting all levels of government in their efforts to improve our resilience while grappling with the limitations of their capabilities. Even in small- and medium-sized disasters, which the government is generally effective at managing, significant access and service gaps still exist. In large-scale disasters or catastrophes, government resources and capabilities can be overwhelmed. In this call, Mike Riedy and Matt Cedar will provide an overview of the four phases of emergency management, differences between community recovery and individual recovery and suggest ways to support the long-term recovery group process, including why financial contributions are best.
