In collaboration with our whole-of-government partners, this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) S&T is hosting a series of virtual conversations that show how S&T is investing in new ideas and technologies to keep you safe.
The Disaster Recovery Tracking Tool includes 79 metrics that measure how a community is recovering from a disaster. These metrics (e.g., total disaster related business closures, number of organizations involved in recovery, median home value) are organized in four themes and 10 focus areas that are based on FEMA’s recovery support functions and core capabilities in order to link the metrics to the National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) guidance. Researchers are also working to test ways in which the metrics can be used to characterize recovery progress, detect problems with recovery, and improve future recovery and resilience. A practitioner checklist will help end users decide which metrics to use and how to begin collecting data.
S&T partnered with the electric utility industry and the Office of Infrastructure Protection to initiate the Recovery Transformer (RecX) project.
