A Beachview damage assessor will help compose a two-person, damage assessment team that surveys communities before and after storms strike the area(s). This person should have a working knowledge of electrical work, especially regarding electrical distribution and transmission lines. As a qualified assessor, this person should be able to identify what response actions need to take place after a storm strikes.
The information gathered will:
Determine what responses and actions will be initiated by utility crew
Alert neighbors to structural problems in homes and potentially dangerous neighborhood situations
Determine whether an evacuation is needed
This assessor will also aid in gathering detailed, post-disaster information to be used by the electric utility’s operations center to evaluate the severity of damage and to strategize its response and recovery efforts.
