FEMA beings assessment of area damage


September 27, 2018

Representatives with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Small Business Administration, Wisconsin Emergency Management and other state and local agencies will be participating in Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDA) beginning Monday, September 24 in the afternoon. The PDA is the first step in seeking federal disaster assistance for flooding and tornadoes that occurred August 17 – September 14.

There are eight teams. Five teams will assess damage to homes and businesses and three teams will assess damage to public infrastructure. We anticipate the PDA’s should take a week. When the team finishes a county they will go to the next county on their list. Due to the extent of damage in Dane County - we will have two Individual Assistance Teams.
