What is Recovery?
Disaster recovery is the phase of the emergency management cycle that begins with the stabilization of the incident and ends when the community has recovered from the disaster’s impacts. This process can take months, even years and require rebuilding of services and infrastructure, facilities and operations, and the lives and livelihoods of many thousands of people.
Recovery planning identifies the long-range actions needed to return the organization to its normal operations as quickly and completely as possible, and may involve: Medical issues; Psychological issues; Infrastructure issues; Liability issues; Insurance issues; Documentation issues.
