From the Document: "When it comes to organizing long-term recovery, LDRM's [Local Disaster Recovery Manager] offer a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Their function is to organize, coordinate and advance recovery at the local level. Specifically, LDRM's bring recovery management and public administration experience, critical thinking habits, and resource development skills. The LDRM is also a 'force-multiplier' - one employee who finds resources to bring on additional staff, makes existing operations more efficient, and helps staff and elected leaders make better recovery decisions."
