Released last week, FEMA is seeking comment from emergency managers on the draft FEMA Damage Assessment Operating Manual. The manual establishes (much needed!) national damage assessment standards developed from historic lessons learned and best practices already in use by local, state, tribal, territorial, and federal emergency management agencies.
The draft manual and comment matrix are posted in the FEMA Library. FEMA asks that comments be submitted no later than November 14, 2015 to Mr. Ryan Buras, Senior Program Advisor at PDAmanual@fema.dhs.gov.
Emergency managers – Be Heard!
