Category B: Safety Inspections
Common Emergency Protective Measure 14
Post-incident safety inspections for public and private facilities are eligible, as well as posting appropriate placards (e.g., "red-tagging" a building that is unsafe).
The specific purpose of the inspection must be to determine whether the facility is safe for entry, occupancy, and lawful use.
The Applicant must clearly substantiate that the purpose of the inspection was for safety and not to assess damage. Building inspections are not eligible if the purpose of the inspection is to:
- Determine whether the building is Substantially Damaged for the purpose of compliance with the community's floodplain management ordinance
- Determine whether the building needs to be elevated or relocated, in accordance with the community's floodplain management ordinance
- Ensure that repairs are completed in accordance with the community's building code or standard
