The National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) is a guide to promote effective recovery, particularly for those incidents that are large scale or catastrophic.
The NDRF provides guidance that enables effective recovery support to disaster-impacted States, Tribes, and Local jurisdictions. It provides a flexible structure that enables disaster recovery managers to operate in a unified and collaborative manner. It also focuses on how best to restore, redevelop, and revitalize the health, social, economic, natural, and environmental fabric of the community and build a more resilient Nation.
The NDRF defines:
- Recovery core principles
- Roles and responsibilities of recovery coordinators and other stakeholders
- A coordinating structure that facilitates communication and collaboration among all stakeholders
- Guidance for pre-disaster and post-disaster recovery planning
- The overall process by which communities can capitalize on opportunities to rebuild stronger, smarter, and safer
The National Preparedness Goal identifies preliminary targets in building recovery capabilities related to:
- Public Information and Warning
- Operational Coordination
- Economic Recovery
- Health and Social Services
- Infrastructure Systems
- Natural and Cultural Resources
Another great resource for recovery is the Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Guide for Local Governments, and can be found at the website link below.
