Preparing for Post-Disaster Responsibilities

Early disaster preparedness is crucial for the efficient and effective administration of any Floodplain Administrator's duties. This two-hour long training workshop, "Preparing for Post-Disaster Responsibilities," highlights the local floodplain administrator's tasks and offers guidance for a quick and well-organized response.

Substantial Damage Estimator (SDE) 2.0

When structures located within the SFHA are damaged, substantial damage determinations must be made. When a structure is deemed substantially damaged, specific flood hazard reduction regulations become effective. FEMA has developed an excellent software tool - SDE 2.0 - to assist State & local officials in determining substantial damage for residential & non-residential structures. This is used in coordination with the community's local floodplain management ordinance, which meets the requirements of the NFIP. The tool can be used to assess flood, wind, wildfire, seismic, & other forms of damage. It helps communities provide timely substantial damage determinations so that reconstruction can begin following a disaster. Both workshops are being offered at the State Emergency Management Agency Operation Center (SEOC):
