Business resources are available to help combat “2020” and provide assistance for recent natural events such as high winds and earthquakes. These resources include a short but very important damage assessment survey being used to request and distribute FEMA funding throughout Davis County, a FREE emergency preparedness program network through the State of Utah full of business resources and training opportunities, and grant funding through FEMA and its Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program.
Davis County Wind Damage Assessment Survey
PLEASE take a few moments to complete the Davis County Wind Damage Assessment Survey — September 8, 2020 for allocation of federal financial resources due to the recent natural disaster.
The State of Utah “Be Ready” program
The Be Ready program provides a wealth of resources such as online business continuity planning training, tools and support, and promotional materials. It also provides connection to the latest preparedness information, provides networking opportunities, and connects you to subject matter experts as well as your local municipal Emergency Manager and Private Sector Preparedness Councils.
A FEMA resource that aims to categorically shift the federal focus away from reactive disaster spending and toward research-supported, proactive investment in community resilience.
Capability- and Capacity-Building Activities
These are activities that enhance the knowledge, skills, and expertise of the current workforce to expand or improve the administration of mitigation assistance.
Mitigation projects are cost-effective projects designed to increase resilience and public safety; reduce injuries and loss of life; and reduce damage and destruction to property, critical services, facilities, and infrastructure.
Management costs allow FEMA to provide financial assistance to reimburse the recipient and subrecipient for eligible and reasonable indirect costs, direct administrative costs, and other administrative expenses associated with a specific mitigation project or C&CB activity.
