Why the Focus?

  • FEMA encourages States, Tribal, Local Governments, and Private Non Profits to be proactive in their planning process for debris.

  • Those with a comprehensive Debris Management Plan are:

    • Better prepared to restore public services.

    • Better prepared to ensure public health and safety.

    • Better prepared to receive full level of benefits if there is a federal declaration.

  • Success depends on the jurisdictions commitment to development, implementation, and evaluation.
