The Red Guide to Recovery - Native Edition was created to assist disaster survivors in Tribal communities by making available a single source of pertinent, easy to read disaster recovery information that will walk them step-by-step through the recovery process while raising awareness of the many pitfalls that may present themselves in post-disaster scenarios.

About the Author

Having witnessed first-hand the many difficulties that countless disaster survivors encountered in the aftermath of firestorms, floods, and other natural or man made disasters, the Author Sean Scott, felt compelled to share his knowledge and experience by creating a straightforward informational guide to give disaster survivors the tools they need to help them avoid becoming disaster “victims”. Sean is a second generation fire restoration contractor with over 30 years experience in the construction and restoration field. He appreciates the invaluable assistance provided by fire officials, government agencies, attorneys, restoration experts, and insurance professionals. Without their generous contributions of time, knowledge, and advice, this book would not have been possible.
