Download this free PDF to identify locations to be use as shelters after a disaster.

An on-site detailed damage assessment is an initial-stage evaluation of a facility to determine whether it is suitable to be used as a shelter after a natural disaster prompts people to evacuate their homes.

This page will discuss:

  • On-site detailed damage assessment requirements
  • The purpose of an on-site detailed damage assessment
  • Benefits of using an on-site detailed damage assessment app

What are the requirements of an on-site detailed damage assessment?

An on-site detailed damage assessment helps emergency managers find and evaluate facilities (in this case, schools) to determine whether they can be used as a shelter for people who have fled their homes after a natural disaster such as an earthquake, hurricane, or tornado.

Who uses an on-site detailed damage assessment and why?

Emergency management officials can use this checklist to assess a facility prior to a disaster occurring. School officials could also complete this checklist and share with emergency authorities to determine whether the school can be transformed into a temporary shelter.

Why use an on-site detailed damage assessment app?

When time is of the essence, an on-site detailed damage assessment app enables emergency managers to rapidly survey facilities to locate temporary shelters before a disaster occurs. Surveyors can attach photos and even video to the assessment to verify the facility’s features and amenities, and send reports directly from the site for rapid decision making.
