PREPARE

Storm Safe LA
Disaster Preparedness & Recovery Education Program

Storm Safe LA is a multi-faceted holistic approach to disaster preparedness for the people (every citizen, every demographic) of Louisiana. TRAC’s programs are designed to meet the specific risks and demographic needs of each Louisiana parish.  All parish campaigns are launched simultaneously, but autonomously. By addressing the specific factors that makeup each parish’s vulnerability and implementing proactive education campaigns that focus on action instead of reaction we have been improving the recovery capacity.  This largely and in time has an affect on the ecological and economical footprint of disasters in the future. By promoting community ownership the campaigns become a sustainable action to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to human life and property.

SUPPORT

Disaster Case Management & Client Advocacy
When disasters make it impossible to recover, TRAC finds a way…everyday

TRAC approaches case management comprehensively and holistically, recognizing that the recovery process impacts each client uniquely. Case Managers conduct extensive, in-depth assessments in order to respond appropriately, effectively, efficiently, and holistically to the needs of their clients; this model allows for ongoing assessment and continuous need identification, thereby responding proactively to the evolving needs of clients, while simultaneously reducing service duplication and maximizing service utilization.

Resource Development
Collaboration to maximize the success of clients, programs, and services 

In accepting the reality of living in a coastal area, the question is not IF this community will face another disaster, but rather, WHEN the next disaster will strike.  Responding effectively to provide disaster recovery services is a complex issue; therefore, TRAC collaborates with numerous partners to maximize the success of its clients, programs, and services and to further its commitment to long-term recovery, sustainability, and community-building.
