KPF 6: Augment Essential Services to Achieve Recovery Outcomes

In the context of a biological incident, planning for recovery is as critical as planning for response. Resilient and sustainable recovery encompasses not only the restoration of a community’s physical structures but also the maintaining continuity of essential services and meeting the enduring needs of the community members. Recovery actions may require long-term economic support, restoration of interrupted critical infrastructure operations, site remediation, public health surveillance and behavioral health programs, monitoring of the community impact due to losses suffered and financial stress, and/or augmentation of essential services at varying levels. Mitigation of long-term incident impacts requires collaboration across community stakeholders to establish and prioritize recovery outcomes across the recovery continuum. Planning for incident recovery will facilitate the achievement of recovery outcomes for impacted communities through rapid and effective recovery operations.
