Emergency Management Apps

Public Assistance Applicant Damage Report

States can conduct their own public assistance damage assessments prior to FEMA involvement. The system was designed using the FEMA Public Assistance Guide with questions built for all Categories A-G. By providing FEMA access to your Fulcrum account data they will have what they need to conduct desk top validations prior to field deployment. This will help streamline joint agency onsite assessments and lead toward more timely disaster declaration and project formulation. This app is fully customizable to fit your specific damage assessment forms, and works offline in case of inclement weather or no internet signal.
