After the Fire, Use These Tips and Avoid the Tricksters

For those who like to assimilate information by reading.

I've done a Disaster Zone TV Show on this topic, and a Disaster Zone Podcast — both on how people need to be careful in the disaster recovery process when they have lost their home. 

People take in information differently: some like to watch, others listen, and still others read. The two information sources above cover the watch and listen, and the one below is for those who like to read. This one is an article I wrote for Emergency Management Magazine.

"After the Wildfire: Watch out for these Disaster Recovery Pitfalls."

All three sources are based on the book The Red Guide to Recovery--A Resource Handbook for Disaster Survivors. 

Eric Holdeman is a contributing writer for Emergency Management magazine and is the former director of the King County, Wash., Office of Emergency Management.
