Recovering from a Disaster
Recovering from a disaster is usually a gradual process.
Safety is a primary issue, as are mental and physical
well-being. If assistance is available, knowing how to
access it makes the process faster and less stressful. This

disaster strikes in order to begin getting your home, your
community and your life back to normal.
Your first concern after a disaster is your family’s health
and safety. You need to consider possible safety issues and
monitor family health and well-being.
