Most people do not focus on disaster planning until something happens. For community association managers, boards, and professional advisors, planning is essential to ensure that the community can respond quickly and recover efficiently after a natural disaster.

No matter what type of disaster occurs—environmental, socio-political, or technological—community leaders must oversee and lead the recovery process. A comprehensive and current disaster plan is crucial for community resiliency and sustainability. Common characteristics of communities that rebound successfully from a major disaster include a strong desire to recover and rebuild, active networking with local agencies and resources, and a cadre of trained community leaders.

Natural Disasters is also available as a free PDF download. However, for those who want a printed version, it is available here at cost.
