This guide highlights the critical tasks and coordination challenges that state, tribal, territorial
or local governments most commonly address when managing a recovery process. It describes
the processes, considerations and interdependencies of the key elements to enhance recovery coordination; those include leading, organizing, assessing, informing, engaging and implementing.
This guide is designed to be applied after an incident, either in concert with existing pre-incident recovery plans or to enhance post-incident planning efforts. Applying the key elements, this guide is organized into four sections:
• leading the recovery coordination process;
• assessing and evaluating current and anticipated
• identifying and coordinating key resources; and
• building resilience into recovery.
