Hurricane Preparedness during the COVID-19 Pandemic​:
SCDRP Participant Call, April 16, 2020

Guest Speaker: Jim Murley, Chief Resilience Officer, Office of Resilience, Dept. of Regulatory and Economic Resources, Miami-Dade, Florida

Jim Murley gives us some insight on how Miami-Dade is preparing for hurricane season as a compounding problem given that usual hurricane preparedness behaviors are directly counter to practices that have proven to stop the coronavirus spread. We were fortunate to have a FEMA representative on the line as well who gave us some insight on how they are mobilizing to help us overcome this ongoing threat while sharing some information on the new CBDG-CV (for COVID) grants.

For the Long Haul: Public-Private Partnerships for Long-Term Disaster Recovery 


This report examines public-private partnerships (also known as PPPs or P3s) active in long-term disaster recovery. We start by sharing insights about disaster recovery and P3s from existing resources. We then present case analyses of six partnerships, highlighting organizational structures, funding models, and lessons learned that the partnerships have shared with us. The report draws conclusions based on these six cases and makes recommendations for public sector officials, private sector leaders, and existing partnerships that wish to use organized, collaborative approaches to improve long-term disaster recovery.

Brunswick-Glynn County Disaster Recovery and Redevelopment Plan

This plan, developed as a project under the Southeast Disaster Resilience Partnership, provides a framework to achieve pre-determined recovery and redevelopment objectives that align with the County’s vision and goals. The plan incorporates national best practices, guidance from the Georgia Post-Disaster Recovery and Redevelopment Guide, and lessons learned from similar planning initiatives within Georgia’s coastal communities.

Disaster Recovery Frameworks & Plans

Disaster resilience and recovery plans provide guidance on how the whole community works together to restore, redevelop and revitalize the health, social, economic, natural and environmental fabric of a community after disaster, and which practices served to support resiliency. Disaster recovery plans recommend coordination structures across state, local, tribal, and private sector groups, and some may also provide strategic recommendations about how redevelopment should occur to create a more resilient community.


The National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) provides a structure for federal government collaboration during disaster recovery. Many states and local governments have modeled disaster recovery frameworks after the NDRF.
