Damage Reporting Information
What happens after the Incident is Over?

After the incident is over it is time to asses the damage that has occurred.  This initial assessment of the damage is vital to residents of the county obtaining federal assistance.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency requires a "Minimum Threshold" of damage to have occurred before they can begin detailed assessments and offer assistance.  It is vital that the county provide information on the initially identified damage as quickly as possible.  The sooner we can identify if the damage has reached the threshold, the sooner we can start getting federal assistance.

What is my role in damage reporting?

Your role is to quickly get us an estimate of what damage you have sustained!  This does not need to be an exact figure, just an estimate using your own judgment.
