MORNING ACTIVITIES                              

Substantial Damage Estimator (SDE) 4-Hour Workshop     Presenter:  Mark Vieira, FEMA RIV

This workshop is a must for anyone who provides local damage assessments.  The Substantial Damage Estimator (SDE) tool was developed by FEMA to assist State and local officials in determining substantial damage for residential and non-residential structures.  The SDE tool can be used to assess flood, wind, wildfire, seismic, and other forms of damage.  It helps communities provide timely substantial damage determinations so that reconstruction can begin following a disaster.
