1 Disaster Cycle Services Prepare Respond Recover Building Resilient Communities North Carolina Emergency Management Association March 24, 2014

2 What’s Different? Shift from a linear structure … Prepare Respond Recover To One Disaster Cycle 2

3 What is the Disaster Cycle? 3 All work is accomplished through processes Three core processes deliver services to the client Five pillar processes support the three core processes

4 The Core Processes 4 Prepare Respond Recover

5 Prepare Facilitate a person, business, organization, or community to take action before, during or after an emergency to limit the impact of the emergency. Increase number of individuals and families who have taken steps to be more prepared. 5 Calls-to-action: Download preparedness app and make an emergency plan Encourage membership/partnership as a Ready When the Time Comes Partner Strengthen the public's awareness of preparedness and their participation in Red Cross programs The Core Processes

6 Respond Build on the readiness and community mobilization work of our field units Capitalize on the spontaneous outpouring of goodwill and assistance Work more closely with government on response activities 6 National Headquarters’ role is to support field units, where Regional and Divisional units manage event with support from DOCC as needed The Core Processes

7 Recover Begins when emergency needs have been met Base services on clients and community needs Make decisions at the level closest to the client 7 Serve as a convener of community resources to meet client’s short and long term needs The Core Processes

8 The Pillar Processes 8 Engage Volunteers & Employees Mobilize the Community Align with Government Information Management & Situational Awareness Deploy Material Resources & Technology

9 Engage Volunteers & Employees Size and skill of volunteer workforce Division & Region based leadership teams Proactively recruit and engage event based volunteers Volunteers can offset state and local costs (e.g., Sandy, Joplin) 9 The Pillar Processes

10 Mobilize the Community Focus on convening of stakeholders and being a facilitative leader Weave community mobilization into all 3 phases, not just response 10 The Pillar Processes

11 Align with Government I ncreasing communication and strengthen relationships with government partners Sharing and leveraging resources Better coordination in service delivery 11 The Pillar Processes

13 Information Management & Situational Awareness Developing new tools: Apps  Hurricane DigiDoc Virtual teams Focusing on increasing timeliness and efficiency of information reporting and sharing while improving quality 13 The Pillar Processes

31 Financial Disaster Costs 31


33 33 Disaster Resiliency in Communities: Concept and Definitions Hazard vs. RiskDisaster Financial Implications of DisasterVulnerability & Social Vulnerability Rural, Suburban & Urban PovertyCommunity Resilience Sustainable Community Development Disaster Mitigation Preparedness  Response  Recovery Cultural sensitive and awareness

34 Vulnerability 34 Community Vulnerability- Wisner, et al (2004), “defined vulnerability broadly in relation to natural hazards as the characteristics of a person or group and their situation that influence their capacity to anticipate, cope with, resist and recover from the impact of a natural hazard (an extreme natural event or process)”. Social Vulnerability- Cutter, (1996). “Social vulnerability is partially the product of social inequalities—those social factors that influence or shape the susceptibility of various groups to harm and that also govern their ability to respond”.

35 Poverty Condition in which people's basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter are not being met. Poverty is generally of two types: 1.Absolute poverty is synonymous with destitution and occurs when people cannot obtain adequate resources (measured in terms of calories or nutrition) to support a minimum level of physical health. Absolute poverty means about the same everywhere, and can be eradicated as demonstrated by some countries. 2.Relative poverty occurs when people do not enjoy a certain minimum level of living standards as determined by a government (and enjoyed by the bulk of the population) that vary from country to country, sometimes within the same country. Relative poverty occurs everywhere, is said to be increasing, and may never be eradicated.

36 Fundamentals Questions in Project Design What are the problems? Who is implicated? What should we do? What we can do? What do we want to achieve? How? What are the characteristics of a safe and resilient community? How do we get there? What are the key indicators of a successful community disaster education program?

37 Disaster Community Resiliency Increase Capacity Reduce Vulnerabilit y

38 Project Planning Approach

39 Who Should Participate? (Partner Analysis) Determine person/s or group/s interested in the project. Classify in terms of influence Classify in terms of importance Classify in terms of capacity
