DAMS

The Damage Assessment Management System (DAMS) is a robust modular enterprise level application for the complete assessment, assignment, management and implementation of activities related to disaster events.

Damage assessment during a disaster requires extensive coordination including; determining what happened, what the immediate effects are, which areas were hardest hit, what situation must be given a priority.

Damage Assessment Teams can respond quickly to affected areas with increased electronic communications. Using workflow management approvals from supervisors in coordination with other divisions DAMS effectively manages the execution of specific field work order requests.

DAMS are a portable application that can run on a laptop or handheld device using wireless technology and/or offline synchronization at the division.

DAMS data is stored in a central repository for all necessary FEMA reporting needs and various analytics.
