Next steps toward recovery
Disaster recovery is a process of returning an affected community to its proper level of functioning after an emergency.
The transition to recovery can involve many personal considerations including but not limited to:
- clean up
- your well being
The NSW SES has prepared a Recovery Guide to assist you to take the next steps towards recovery following a disaster.
At a community level, recovery often involves:
- the reconstruction of the physical infrastructure and
- the restoration of emotional, social, economic and physical wellbeing.
In NSW, recovery from major disasters is managed by a wide range of organisations including members of the State and Local Recovery Committees outlined in the NSW Recovery Plan
There are also a number of Disaster Assistance Schemes that can help you get back on your feet following a disaster.
The NSW Government Disaster Assistance Guidelines also help inform the community, business, government, emergency services, councils, functional areas and those working in disaster recovery of the assistance available.
