Yesterday, the Governor announced a statewide effort to collect damage assessment data for this unprecedented event. This information is being collected to help officials across the state gain an understanding of damages for individuals throughout Texas. EMCs will have direct access to all reporting via WebEoc on the Recovery Common Operating Picture Board.
Our objective in this effort is to demonstrate the scale of this disaster at the local level. As such, this will be a local effort with support from the state. Consider pushing out the access link and QR code on social media for the best results. Our previous use of this product has yielded excellent results in multiple large disasters. With this detailed information, we will be able to demonstrate the total impact statewide.
Feel free to use your local seal or office name with this distribution. The success of this effort will assist the local jurisdiction with the eligibility to potential federal programs.
The self-reporting survey is also accessible via https://tdem.texas.gov/warm/.
If there are any questions, feel free to reach out to your TDEM District Coordinator or Disaster Recovery Task Force Regional Coordinator.
