Recovery begins simultaneously in the response phase of a disaster. Recovery is no longer thought of as an activity that occurs once the response phase is over. The simultaneous effort of response and recovery requires the need for coordination, information sharing, resource prioritization and joint planning are critical to successful recovery operations. The Boulder Office of Emergency Management supports its local governments and non-profit organizations in their continued recovery operations from the 2013 floods and subsequent disasters.
