New FEMA Report on Seven Years of Experience with ESF#14: Long-Term Community Recovery

FEMA has a knack for issuing reports and not bothering to tell anyone.  I am not sure of the release date but there is a new report available. Here is the direct link to the 76 page report, Lessons in Community Recovery; Seven Years of Emergency Support Function #14, Long Term Recovery from 2004-2011. The report is dated December 2011.

The report is somewhat interesting and informative.  In my view there is too much emphasis on process and not enough on outcome, results, problems. Some years ago, the famous Gilbert White ( Director of the Hazards Center at the Univ. of CO/Boulder) said “Don’t tell me what you did, tell me what you accomplished.”  That remains good advice for all of us.
