The purpose of the “Community Response to Technological Disasters” guidebook is to help community officials and individuals throughout a region affected by a technological disaster recognize, identify and mitigate the adverse psychological effects associated with these events.
The guidebook has become an assessment tool and road map, enabling communities and individuals alike to understand what a technological disaster is, how it differs from a natural disaster, what to expect during the disaster, and in the years following the event. The guidebook provides information on where to find help. Although natural disasters occur more often, technological, or man-made, disasters tend to have a greater, more profound emotional impact on people.
RestoreYourEconomy.org provides resources and best practice information for public and private stakeholders who are seeking to rebuild their local economies after an economic disruption, be it a natural disaster or man-made crisis, as well as assist the business community in preparing for a disruption.
