New system guides recovery planning before a disaster happens | News
OKLAHOMA CITY– A federal agency is creating a system that establishes coordination structures, leadership roles and responsibilities, and guides recovery planning at all levels of government before a disaster happens.
FEMA announced that it is launching the National Disaster Recovery Framework program for the first time in the Sooner State.
The National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) is a guide designed to ensure coordination and recovery planning at all levels of government before a disaster, and defines how everyone will work together following a disaster to best meet the needs of states and communities in their recoveries.
Currently, nine Disaster Survivor Assistance crews are visiting LeFlore, Okfuskee, and Okmulgee counties to help victims apply for assistance and answer questions regarding what type of help is available.
So far, FEMA has approved over $27.5 million for victims from the May storms.
