PLANNING FOR POST-DISASTER RECOVERY: NEXT GENERATION

Planning for post-disaster recovery: next generationOver the past four years, the APA Hazards Planning Center worked under an agreement with FEMA to develop Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery: Next Generation (PAS 576). This updated manual offers a no-nonsense explanation of the benefits — and limitations — of planning for unpredictable events.  Mr. Walther was involved in the project form outset serving as a subject matter expert and reviewer.

The updated manual offers a no-nonsense explanation of the benefits – and limitations – of planning for the unpredictable events whether it be from floods, earthquake, tornado or wildfire.  Case studies from big cities and smaller towns show what it takes to come back stronger from a natural disaster.  A pdf copy can be downloaded from the APA website: https://www.planning.org.
