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:

  • power
  • animals
  • clean up
  • repairs
  • insurance
  • 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.
