Restore Your provides disaster preparedness, post-disaster economic recovery, and disaster resiliency resources, tools, and event announcements to educate communities, businesses, and decision makers.

Restore Your Economy’s Economic Development Role In Disaster Recovery section illustrates both the traditional role of economic development professionals and their additional responsibilities in the event of a disaster as well as what they should be doing to ensure their business community is better prepared.

Their Phases of Disaster page explains the phases of disaster: prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. Provided with descriptions of these phases are examples of regions that have incorporated disaster preparation and recovery.
