City of Seattle Office of Emergency Management

Disaster Recovery Framework

BERK led development of a community disaster recovery framework for the City of Seattle. The process involved significant stakeholder engagement to articulate a vision for recovery, establish decision making processes, and outline the roles and responsibilities of a standing Community Recovery Task Force. The framework also details guidance and options for individual Recovery Support Functions, including the recovery of housing, infrastructure, economics, and health and social services, among others. BERK managed efforts to identify participants for an Executive Advisory Group and Disaster Recovery Planning Committee and designed a series of meetings for each group that led to the development of the Disaster Recovery Framework and Task Force.
