Disasters come in many form, and how communities respond and recover depends a lot on the communities themselves. An unprepared community can react negatively, constantly firefighting problems that crop up, whereas another community could be responding in an orderly manner, as everyone knows exactly what to do. In emergency situations, regular training and guidelines may not work as people tend to panic and forget what to do, but if they are part of the community that help create solutions, everyone knows their role and what they can do for the community.
