6.28 Evaluation of Recovery Activities

Evaluation of recovery activities and recovery programs following emergency events is essential to maximise lessons learned and identify where improvements can be made. Evaluation may take the form of a formal debrief of operations, or may involve workshops, seminars or applied research into particular areas of activity.

The Municipal Recovery Manager (MRM) should conduct an evaluation of recovery operations following activation of the recovery arrangements in the Municipal Emergency Management Plan. The evaluation may be an informal or formal debrief depending on the scale of the activation, and must identify the strengths and weaknesses of the local operational response to the needs of the community.

The Municipal Recovery Manager must ensure that the Regional Recovery Coordinator (DHS) is made aware of the outcome of the evaluation.
