Abstract

Disaster Assistance Information Handbook identifies local disaster relief resources which area governments can mobilize in the event of a natural disaster. Information on local disaster relief resources includes identification of Government-owned equipment which could be pressed into service for: debris removal, fire, and rescue services, medical transport, and emergency power. The Handbook also identifies state, federal, and private agencies and groups with disaster relief functions. General procedures for requesting such assistance are also outlined. In response to reviewed local inquiries concerning the Federal Flood Insurance Program, model ordinances for Coastal Aid riverine flooding (developed by HUD and CBCOG) are again reviewed.
