Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief and Recovery

Building owners face a distinct set of challenges in responding to natural disasters. While they can rely to a certain extent on local, city, and state agencies to provide post-disaster services, they are ultimately responsible for caring for their own properties. These resources can help building owners respond quickly and effectively in order to minimize property damage and ensure a safe return home.

Recently published third edition of the AIA Disaster Assistance Handbook offers case studies and best practices on how to prepare, respond and recover from natural disasters.
