G270.4 – Recovery from Disaster: The Local Government Role
The goal of this two-day course is to explain the recovery process roles and responsibilities at the local government level and thus facilitate the development of a Disaster Recovery Plan. This course includes lectures, facilitator led discussions, and small group and individual activities. Participants will have the opportunities throughout the course to apply concepts learned through problem-solving activities and case studies.
- Increase local government awareness of issues involved in disaster recovery
- Identify types of local government officals who serve on the disaster recovery teams (DRTs)
- Identify the roles and responsibilities of disaster recovery team members
This course is best suited for a mixed audience of emergency managers and allied professionals who normally are involved in local recovery operations. These allied professionals include public works directors, building inspectors, housing officials, and community planners.
There are no required prerequisites for this course.
