The recovery process relies upon these RSFs to
first stabilize, then rebuild and revitalize damaged
community assets in each impacted category.
Internal and external stakeholder engagement is
essential throughout the development of the plan,
as well as to guide proper implementation and
refinement over time.
Communit y Outreach
The City relied on its community partners to provide
feedback and guidance for the development of
the recovery action plan. Virtual meetings, phone
interviews and online surveys were the methods
utilized to collect information.
• Received 112 COVID-19 impact survey responses
from external stakeholders
• Hosted more than 20 virtual meetings
12 TOGETHER WE CAN: A PRIMER FOR RECOVERY

RECOVERY ACTION PLAN ASSUMPTIONS
The Recovery Action Plan is based on the following
• Large-scale disasters may occur in the City in both
rural and urban settings and may take place in
multiple locations simultaneously.
• Recovery activities will be initiated concurrently
with response and will occur in short-term,
intermediate, and long-term phases, with the initial
focus on population protection.
• Short term—ESF-14 performed the short-term
recovery activities during the response effort.
• Intermediate—This document serves as the
Intermediate Recovery Plan.
• Long term—The City’s Long-Term Recovery
activities will be captured via an update to the
City’s Strategic Plan.
• Prompt and effective recovery operations will
require coordination across the whole community,
including emergency services, disaster relief,
volunteer organizations, the private sector, and the
public. All entities requested to assist will do so to
the fullest extent of their ability.
• The EOC will be activated, and implementation of
the EOP will begin before emergency conditions
subside. This allows recovery actions to be
implemented according to this Recovery Action
Plan, quickly and eff iciently.
• Strategies in the Recovery Action Plan may be
used to update the Strategic Plan.
• Implementation of local recovery operations will
require partnerships among local, tribal, state,
federal, and voluntary organizations, and private
• Events that do not meet damage threshold
standards for federal assistance may require more
long-term recovery actions by local, tribal, and
state agencies to make up for the lack of federal
assistance program resources.
• Local, tribal, and state level planning efforts
may not rely on the assumption that federal level
assistance will be available.
• Catastrophic disasters of national significance
will be subject to modified, expedited actions
and will not follow routine information gathering
and detailed analysis of data prior to seeking
supplemental federal disaster assistance.
• Short-term ESF 14 recovery operations address
essential and immediate community and citizen
needs by restoring vital services, stabilizing the
situation, and preserving property. These short-term
operations frequently overlap with the
response operations, as well as intermediate and
long-term recovery operations.
