Connecticut has experienced a number of damaging weather events. Practically no community has been untouched. In the hours and days after an event, emergency responders, road and utility crews and others immediately jump into action to get municipalities on line. Planners will learn how will this response and recovery be handled for an event that requires municipalities to enter into a recovery phase that will last months, possibly years? The best time to prepare to answer that question is now. Long term Recovery (LTR) planning is important well before a disaster hits. This workshop will help local officials differentiate between immediate recovery and long term recovery, and a planner's role as part of the municipal team to prepare for a long term recovery, and what type of planning is necessary to identify municipal risks and exposures.
