Sean Scott, Author
The Red Guide to Recovery

Each year people across America are faced with the threat of wildfires, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, and a host of other natural or man-made disasters. Sadly, few people prepare and fewer still consider how they will recover.

For those faced with the loss of their home or who become displaced, the days that follow can be the beginning of a nightmare. The state of chaos created by a disaster, coupled with the lack of knowledge of what to do in the aftermath, makes survivors vulnerable to the many pitfalls that often accompany post-disaster scenarios.

This is a time where disaster survivors can all-to-easily make hasty or uninformed decisions that can transform them into disaster victims.

Awareness and Support

After witnessing close friends and his community devastated by wildfires that swept through Southern California in 2003 and 2007, which combined destroyed over 6,000 homes and damaged countless others, Sean Scott realized that disaster survivors desperately needed a roadmap to walk them through the recovery process, and so, The Red Guide to Recovery – Resource Handbook for Disaster Survivors was born.

Now used by fire departments, relief organizations, government agencies, and communities across the U.S., The Red Guide to Recovery is helping countless people prepare for and recover from disaster events.

Sean hopes this book empowers individuals, families, and whole communities to make sound decisions in the midst of one of life’s most difficult trials. This support is to not only to help rebuild lives, but also provide insights to create more resilience before a disaster strikes.

Sean has spent over 43 years in the construction and restoration industry helping thousands of families restore their homes, businesses, and lives. Sean lives in San Diego, California with his wife and two children.
