FEMA LogoThe Tennessee Emergency Management Agency has asked FEMA to conduct Joint Preliminary Damage Assessments as a result of recent severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding

FEMA Region IV has received a request from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency to participate in Joint Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDAs) due to recent severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding.

The State has requested joint PDAs for Public Assistance in Campbell, Claiborne, Clay, Davidson, Decatur, Fentress, Grainger, Hardeman, Henderson, Jackson, Madison, Marion, McNairy, Scott, Williamson, and Wilson counties.

These assessments are scheduled to begin April 12, 2021. The damage assessments are the first step in helping the governor determine whether the scope of the damage is beyond what the state is capable of handling, and if additional federal assistance is needed. Other assessments may be requested as damage information is received from local officials.

For your information, please find attached a comprehensive Stafford Act Declaration Process Fact Sheet.
