Emergency Management Apps

Damage Assessment App

A handy assessment solution is critical in evaluating damages caused by natural hazards. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides a streamlined manual for managing post-disaster damage. This Damage Assessment App is based on FEMA’s wind damage classification manual but can be customized to meet other post-hazard damage assessment requirements and guidelines. Use the GPS, photo-capture, video-recording features and more to gather live damage assessment data and ensure the safety of the community. This form works in both on and offline environments.

Minor Damage

The dwelling's frame is not bent, twisted, or otherwise compromised; however, there is minor structural damage (e.g., it has not been displaced from the foundation).
