The corner stone to an effective community recovery strategy is a sound management plan that is supported by community leaders, elected officials, and disaster management professionals.  Purely developing a management plan is not enough; it must be formalized and recognized by multiple parties.  Furthermore, the management plan must balance many of the common controls of any success program effort: 1) ability to meet projected schedules, 2) control budgets, 3) operate within a defined magnitude or scope, and 4) achieve pre-determined community recovery performance objectives.  The common operations of a community recovery strategy include:

  1. Coordinate Disaster Recovery Operations
  2. Access Community Impacts
  3. Post-Disaster Outreach and Awareness
  4. Analyze Recovery Alternatives
  5. Identify Hazard Mitigation Opportunities
  6. Develop Disaster Recovery Funding Strategy
  7. Facilitate Autonomous Decision-Making
  8. Track and Report Community Recovery Projects
  9. Measure Community Recovery Progress
