Disaster Recovery Lab

Commitment by

SBP

In 2013, St. Bernard Project (SBP) committed to building out the Disaster Recovery Lab (DRL) to cull, develop, and provide a comprehensive array of pre- and post-disaster resilience and recovery strategies. SBP will work with communities vulnerable to disaster, as well as corporate and industry partners to identify, document, and share best practices through the creation of a playbook that will detail a standardized and deployable model for post-disaster recovery. SBP will then use this playbook to train other organizations in SBP's recovery model. In the first year, SBP will train five community-based rebuilding organizations and provide trainings for more than 1,250 families and businesses in SBP's risk mitigation practices. The DRL will work with communities to understand and mitigate their risks, and to put in place practices that will overcome common barriers and ensure an efficient, effective, and predictable recovery.
