    Question about need for new specialized Disaster Recovery training

    Within FEMA's National Disaster Recovery Framework there is this Support Function:

    Community Planning and Capacity Building
    Should there be training/conference sessions developed for this ?
    http://www.fema.gov/recoveryframework/annexes.shtm

    I have sent this to APA.

    Part of APA response:

    The short answer is that it is too soon yet to say exactly what FEMA will do with this support function, as a good deal of the NDRF guidance is still being developed, to my knowledge. However, I see no reason not to do such training, and no reason other than funding (for certain kinds of training) why we could not do this through APA. I hope we can have those discussions with FEMA and DHS as they proceed. But certainly, it would be timely to have at least a conference session in Chicago next year on this topic.

    In the meantime, you may be aware—or wish to be made aware—that APA is currently engaged with FEMA on a research project addressing long-term community recovery planning, called Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery: Next Generation, an effort to rewrite the 1998 guidance in PAS Report No. 483/484. I encourage you to visit the website to learn more about that project
    My suggestion would be to invite planners from such places as Joplin, Tuscaloosa, New Orleans, Grand Forks, ND.
