Debris Form Description
We use our standard Location Feature that allows users to use either structure data to assign the location or to manually geocode the location.
DEBRIS COST FEATURE
Users can use the draw tool to draw an area with 4 corners around the debris site or press the Add Corner button at each corner of the debris pile. The Area (sqft) field will automatically be calculated. Users can also manually enter an area. The Volume (cy) and Debris Cost fields will automatically be calculated once a value is manually entered by the user into the Height (ft) field.
Users can identify the debris Type, the % of Work Complete, whether the debris will be Recycled or Reused, and note any Unique Removal Requirements.
OTHER TASK COSTS FEATURE
FEMA’s Preliminary Damage Assessment Guide also indicates inputs on estimated Labor, Equipment, Material, and/or Contract Costs be provided with PA Damage Assessments.
User (typically at the EOC) will also make a determination of Labor Type:
- Force Account
- Mutual Aid
- Force Account & Contract
- Donated Resources
The Contact section allows users to list provided contact information.
COMMUNITY FUNCTIONS IMPACT FEATURE
FEMA explicitly states that the Damage Assessment impact statement includes inputs on impact to community functions. Crisis Track decided to use the community lifeline concept that FEMA introduced several years ago. Our reasoning for doing this was two-fold. Most importantly, in our deep dive into the new requirements; there were several implicit linkages to the community lifeline concept in the discussion for this requirement.
Secondly, it provides a quick and easily trained methodology for obtaining field observations on community impact.
