Response and Recovery Stages

Flood recovery will take place in overlapping response and recovery stages.  Immediate response actions will be taken to preserve life and property on the individual to municipal scale and in the public and private spheres.  People must temper response actions with the need for safety as floods can create electrical hazards, toxic sludge, contaminated food and water, unstable ground, and dangerous flowing water.  Recovery is typically seen as taking place later, but should be woven directly into response actions, especially as they relate to any permanent rebuilding.  At both stages, everyone should document all damages and response/recovery costs.  Before rebuilding a house or a road, people should think if there are better alternatives.

If a flood disaster occurs, more detailed information will be put on this page.
