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:
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.
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.
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.
