G205 Recovery from Disaster
This course is the condensed version of the 4-day E0210 resident course. This course covers foundational concepts in disaster recovery and the latest guidance on recovery planning. Participants will either assess their own recovery plan or a sample against this national planning guidance. Following that, participants will discuss how a disaster recovery effort can be organized, managed, and led along with the types of challenges faced by recovery managers. Scenario activities throughout the course give participants the opportunity to target information strategies, and address local capabilities and challenges. They will also analyze lessons learned from Joplin, Missouri. Understand local community responsibilities and challenges associated with disaster recovery. Discuss lessons learned in disaster recovery at the local level. Develop and implement a pre-disaster recovery plan
