A prepared community is a resilient community. Each community has its own unique cultural, social, and economic needs that must be addressed during disaster recovery. A tailored disaster preparedness plan helps communities of all sizes get ready to tackle recovery and work to stop disasters before they’re likely to happen.
When it comes to emergency preparedness in Canada, many communities—especially those in rural areas—don’t have the resources to manage the challenges of increasingly frequent disasters.
Being prepared helps streamline recovery and ensures your community can continue to thrive over the long term in the wake of disaster. This whitepaper outlines how community-centred preparedness can increase the benefits of a disaster recovery plan.
The critical components of an effective disaster preparedness plan.
What it means to establish a foundation for disaster restoration and resilience.
Why community engagement is essential for disaster planning.
How to conduct community engagement to establish a strong preparedness plan.
"RIC went above and beyond to help us land over six figures in funding to support our recovery initiatives."
Before working with Rebecca Innes Consulting (RIC) we didn’t have a clear way forward from the catastrophic flooding, wildfire, and heat dome events of 2021. RIC helped us identify, assess, and implement a thorough strategy and project plan to help us rebuild our community.

The department of emergency preparedness and planning had the sincere pleasure of working with Rebecca on the Treaty 6 Emergency Preparedness Speaker Series. She was professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. Of note, the department found her ability to envision new ways of doing emergency preparedness particularly impressive.

"I believe that training like RIC provided will be key for all of us."
I believe that in the future, all Economic Developers will have to consider some degree of sustainability. Disasters are arriving faster than our capability to respond. That’s why I believe that training like RIC provided will be key for all of us.
