Long Term Recovery – Resuming Normal Activities

Your short term recovery efforts would encompass the usual preparations expended towards setting the community on the path to normal operation. These efforts could result from the local government combined with the resources of private and commercial agencies. At the conclusion of the short term recover all or at least most of the community’s daily activities should have been restored.
