Discussion Thread: Understanding Response and Recovery

Response and recovery are often matters of life and death. Preplanning is part of response and recovery. Your boss loved the work you did in the Discussion Thread: Understanding Mitigation and Preparedness. You have just been appointed the new emergency manager for your agency. Before you, no one did anything in this area. Your boss calls you back in and wants to know where to start and what to do regarding these functional areas. (He or she is concerned with the agency itself, not so much the community or customers you serve at this point.)
Tell us what you would tell your boss and how you would go about this task. Be specific and detailed.  
Your boss is going to move forward based on what you tell him or her. This includes many things, such as response, recovery, and all of their sub-components, such as but not limited to redundancy, resiliency, continuity of operations planning, training, equipping, budgeting, etc. You only get one chance to get it right with your boss to start all of this off correctly. Be detailed. (For this post, you do not need to cover mitigation or preparedness functions again.) What does the Bible say about response and recovery?
