Recovering from a Disaster

General guidelines to assist when recovering from a disaster including safety precautions when returning home, inspecting damage, gas leaks, electrical damage and downed power lines.


During an emergency, an emergency alert might require the public to shelter-in-place—that is, to take refuge indoors. Sheltering-in-place offers immediate protection for a short time in your home or other building. Under many circumstances, sheltering-in-place is the best way to protect yourself from a hazard and is a safer alternative than evacuation.
