When a natural or other disaster strikes, life suddenly changes. Routines are shattered, jobs disrupted, and property destroyed. Loved ones may be injured or lives lost.
After a disaster, recovery can take months, even years, to return to a sense of normalcy.
The City of Torrance has established a system to ensure a smooth recovery process following a disaster.
The City's plan outlines that following a disaster that City and the Community consider the following:
- The replacement, reconstruction, removal, relocation of damaged/destroyed infrastructures/buildings.
- The establishment of priorities for emergency repairs to facilities, buildings and infrastructures.
- The economic recovery and community development.
- New or amended zoning ordinances, subdivision regulations, building and sanitary codes.
