Hurricanes, floods, wildfires, mass-casualty shootings — emergency management officials across the country have had to overcome an onslaught of disasters in recent months.

This paper examines why preparations that don’t fully address financial considerations lead to long-term vulnerabilities that can extend the aftermath of a natural disaster or emergency. It also details best practices to achieve financial preparedness and looks at how to choose and capitalize on outside experts when developing reliable financial strategies.
