Long-term Recovery

In the case of a particularly severe event, recovery can take a long time. In fact, it can take years before a community regains a sense of normalcy. Emotional reactions can really set-in at this stage with children, and some adults, suffering from nightmares or depression. The disaster preparations you have made and practiced will help you through this difficult time. If the concerns persist, seek professional guidance and help; there is no shame in doing so.

Again, keep your wits about you, but stand up for yourself when necessary. Be as flexible and resourceful as the situation warrants. Expedite the recovery process by using your identity papers and financial records. Having this information available at an off-site backup location will give you a real sense of security.
