ABSTRACT

Preliminary Damage Assessment for Individual Assistance Operations Manual (9327.2-PR)   [open pdf - 819KB]

"This manual was developed to create uniform procedures for performing Individual Assistance (IA) Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDAs), nationwide, in response to an impacted State's request. Establishing guidelines for PDA procedures ensures that regardless of the location, type of disaster, or FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency] Regional Office involved, the assessment of damages will be consistent, thorough, and well-coordinated. [...] The primary purpose for conducting Individual Assistance (IA) Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDAs) is to identify the impact, type and extent of disaster damages and to determine the impact on individuals and communities while identifying the resources needed for the community to recover."
