Emergency Preparedness & Community Recovery

Does your municipality have a recovery plan in place?

Post-emergency recovery involves a series of projects - and we're here to help.

Extreme weather events in Nova Scotia have become more frequent and severe, resulting in significant impacts on communities. The process of disaster recovery can be both lengthy and costly, with the potential to disrupt community life for generations.

Nova Scotia experienced a year of recovery, dealing with the lasting impacts of Hurricane Fiona, its most devastating wildfire season  on record, and heavy rainfall that led to severe flooding, causing over $170 million in insured damage , along with an active 2023 hurricane season that included landfall by post-tropical storm Lee. These combined extreme weather events underscore the need for urgent disaster preparedness and effective recovery strategies.

Municipalities can take proactive steps to mitigate the impacts of these weather events. Involving project management experts early on can enhance coordination, streamline response teams, and expedite the recovery process for the municipality.
