Consider community recovery

Control Measure Knowledge

Supporting communities in the recovery phase of an incident is a key consideration for fire and rescue services whether this involves individuals, families or has a wider impact.The recovery phase should begin at the earliest opportunity following the onset of an emergency, running in tandem with the response to the emergency. Services should work with local partner agencies to develop protocols for community recovery arrangements. Incident commanders should consider what actions can be taken to promote community recovery before leaving the incident and refer people involved to appropriate agencies.
