Recovery Planning

The Orange County Long-Term Recovery Group is creating a plan for recovery from COVID-19 to help strengthen the community for all people. A survey was conducted to identify community values that will help shape the county’s path forward. The survey results are being used to guide the creation of a disaster recovery plan to increase the resilience of the community.

Community resilience is a community’s ability to withstand and recover from disruptions like natural disasters, accidents or attacks through individual and community preparedness. More information: https://www.orangencforward.org/
