The mission of the Long Term Recovery Coalition of Broward County is to achieve efficient, effective long-term disaster recovery by coordinating and collaboration among its members in order to address the unmet needs of the community. The LTRC also prioritizes communication to its membership throughout the year in an effort to ensure that the entire disaster continuum is part of a coordinated effort in Broward.
The Long Term Recovery Coalition of Broward County is a humanitarian association of nonprofits, governmental agencies, faith based organizations, and businesses with disaster capabilities or resources that respond to a declared disaster locally. It is not a competing or exclusionary organization. It is intended to be a network for organizations active in all facets of the disaster continuum. Each Recovery Coalition member will maintain its own identity and independence while closely collaborating with other member organizations. It will foster cooperation among its members at all levels and in all phases of disaster. Fire Safety Awareness
