Community Impact Assessment

After a disaster, Manitoba EMO requires information to determine the impacts on your community. This is necessary to

  • evaluate the immediate assistance that might be required,
  • ensure your impacts are included in the broader assessment of damages, and
  • to begin evaluating the possibility of Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA).

Manitoba EMO requests communities complete the Community Impact Assessment (CIA) below as soon as possible after the event. Whoever has the best knowledge of the damages can complete the CIA. This will typically be municipal Public Works staff, the Municipal Emergency Coordinator, or other municipal staff. The longer communities wait to complete their CIA, the harder it is to re-construct what has happened. The CIA is only a preliminary assessment of damages. It can be modified or updated, and it will become more detailed once the community has carefully inspected damages.

A CIA is critical to determining if a DFA program will be established and should be prepared accurately and submitted as soon as possible; the CIA helps Manitoba EMO to determine the scale and scope of the disaster event.

The information communities provide in their CIA does not limit or determine the level of DFA assistance that might be made available and it should not be taken as an indication that DFA will be provided.

Your information will be treated as confidential and will only be used internally by Manitoba EMO.
