Following a natural or man-made disaster, the local emergency manager communicates with the Virginia Emergency Operations Center through participation in conference calls, periodic Situation Reports and requests for assistance. Within 72 hours of the event, the local government will provide a Cumulative Local Initial Damage Assessment Report, or IDA. The IDA is a summary of damages to homes, businesses and public infrastructure.IDAs are divided into two categories. The FEMA Damage Assessment Operations Manual is part of a greater effort to provide a user-friendly, streamlined post-disaster damage assessment process that builds on the existing knowledge and expertise of State or Tribe and local partners to identify damage after a natural or man-made disaster.
Eligible Tribes and U.S. territories are considered the same as States for application of FEMA programs; the Manual is aimed at clarifying FEMA damage assessment guidance, promoting standardized information collection, and assisting in the development of requests for federal disaster assistance.
