Restoration: Recovery

After the immediate threat of an emergency incident has passed and the response phase has been completed, the College will shift its focus to short-term continuity efforts and long-term recovery. Recovery differs from continuity by emphasizing the return to original or improved condition those College resources impacted by an emergency.

Depending on the impact of the emergency, recovery activities will address some or all of the following:

  • Economic recovery
  • Health and Social Services
  • Housing and buildings conditions
  • Critical infrastructure disruption (electricity, water, fuel, etc.)
  • Natural and cultural resources
  • Student/faculty/staff welfare and retention
  • Government/business/community stakeholders
  • Post-incident reporting (to county, state, and federal agencies)
  • Service and site restoration planning
  • Social/psychological needs (e.g. grief counseling)
  • Environmental/campus grounds remediation
