After Action Review Tools


These tools are to assist local jurisdictions in completing After Action Reviews (AAR).

Purpose of After Action Reviews:
  • Bring key community partners together to discuss important elements of the jurisdiction’s response to identify strengths and areas for improvement;
  • Help establish common language and consensus at the community, rather than just agency, level;
  • Use evidence-based “best practices” to help facilitate the development of community strategies for recovery and improved resiliency;
  • Provides community planners and leaders with a foundation for enhanced improvement planning and prioritized corrective actions.
