When all members of a family or community prepare for emergencies together, their feeling of connectedness increases. The same is true for recovery house residents. Emergency preparedness protects the health and safety of residents (physical environment) and solidifies community (authority base; recovery orientation). — NARR Standard 3.0 Compendium
