Debris Management Plans

In the recovery phase of a disaster, debris management will be one of the most costly, most difficult, and most open to scrutiny issues that a jurisdiction will face. The federal rules guiding the eligibility for debris management are voluminous, complicated, and open to interpretation. The help simplify this program, DSI develops Debris Management Plans for jurisdictions who may one day face the daunting task of cleaning up after a disaster. Each of DSI’s Debris Management Plans have been approved by FEMA, and contains the key elements needed to ensure all debris removal is completed and the maximum amount of reimbursable funds are made available to every applicant.

Our Debris Management Plans contain the following subjects:

  • Jurisdiction Hazard Analysis
  • Vulnerability Analysis
  • Spatial Profile
  • Debris Forecasting Models
  • Roles and responsibilities of key debris management personnel
  • Coordination between all levels of government
  • Debris Collection Plans

  • Landfill and Disposal Policies
  • Contracted Services
