Course Description:
Partner coordination of disaster response and recovery is highlighted in the National Response Framework, the National Disaster Recovery Framework, and FEMA’s Whole Community approach. One of the keys to effective partner coordination is knowing the roles of various partners such as the different local, State, Local, Tribal, Territorial, volunteer agency, private sector, FEMA and other Federal agency partners who collaborate and work together in disaster response and recovery. This course is designed to improve the mutual understanding and collaborative unity of purpose of these different partners, in order to affect the improved response to and recovery from disasters that is envisioned in FEMA’s Whole Community approach to national preparedness.

Course Description:
This 4-day course covers foundational concepts in disaster recovery and the latest guidance on recovery planning.

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, address local capabilities and challenges, and analyze experiences from Joplin, Missouri. The capstone activity is meant to apply all of the knowledge acquired in the course, through further examination of all of the elements of a pre-disaster recovery planning document in the context of a realistic recovery scenario.
