Following a disaster, you may be eager to return to "normal" or you may be confused as to what you need to do next. Thinking about recovery BEFORE a disaster strikes can be helpful. Recovering from a disaster is usually a gradual process. Safety is a primary issue, as are mental and physical well-being. If assistance is available, knowing how to access it makes the process faster and less stressful.
Whether it's a major event or one with a lesser impact, a well thought out plan will aid in recovery.
