Before a Disaster Strikes – Preparing Communities to be Ready and Resilient
Have you ever experienced a disaster? Not the kind where you burn the turkey on Thanksgiving Day or even the time you sent a fundraising letter with all incorrect names. No, I mean a true disaster, such as a hurricane, fire, tornado, flood, earthquake or even a man-made disaster such as a factory explosion. Thankfully LSA member organizations are there to help communities recover in the days, weeks, months, and often years following a catastrophic event by providing disaster services. During the past year LSA and its members began the process of transforming this ongoing challenge for disaster resources into an opportunity we call the LSA Disaster Network.
