Abstract

The problem is that without a Preliminary Damage Assessment [PDA] plan the county

can not accurately document the need for federal assistance post disaster. The purpose of the

research is to evaluate existing PDA plans and identify key elements for use in developing a plan

for Accomack County. Action research was used to answer research questions designed to find

current plans in use, essential elements of those plans, effectiveness and determining which

could be applied to a plan for Accomack County. Data was collected through questionnaires sent

to hurricane risk jurisdictions and literary review. The results showed a set of essential planning

elements. A PDA plan was developed for Accomack County in an effort to aid in this

communities risk reduction strategies.
