    Damage Assessment & Recovery Training (DART)

    Course Description

    • Throughout this course, you've learned how damage assessment is a critical part of emergency management that sets the tone for the entire response and recovery periods. The quick and accurate gathering of damage assessment information helps guide people and resources to areas in greatest need.
    • Determine whether additional resources will be needed and is a necessary component of the Presidential Disaster Declaration process.
    • By using the information in this course and the resources provided in the Toolkit, you should now be equipped to develop or refine your Agency's and your community's damage assessment programs.
    • When a disaster or major emergency occurs, damage assessment must be done quickly and accurately to reduce the impact on people and identify resource needs.
    • Enables the direction of emergency response personnel and resources to the most appropriate areas and helps identify the need for additional resources. Public works provide a valuable perspective on the infrastructure in a community.
    • Build local capacity for damage assessment by enabling you to develop or refine a damage assessment program for the public works agency. In this course, you will acquire the knowledge, understanding, and skills you need to be able to conduct rapid and effective damage assessments in order to save lives and to protect property and the environment and to begin the process of recovery and mitigation.
    Course objectives:
    Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to:
    • Define the purpose of damage assessment.
    • Define basic terms related to damage assessment.
    • List critical infrastructure in a community. Explain basic concepts related to damage assessment.
    • Use risk and vulnerability assessment information for public works damage assessment planning.
    • Explain how the public works are involved in planning the damage assessment program for both the community and the agency.
    • Use training and exercises to enhance the damage assessment program.
    • Describe basic operations of local damage assessment.
    • Analyze damage assessment after-action information.
