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, to ensure your impacts are included in the broader assessment of damages, and to begin evaluating the possibility of Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA).

Please complete the Community Impact Assessment below as soon as you are confident about the accuracy of your information. Often, Manitoba EMO will ask you to complete a Community Impact Assessment - but, if you have reliable information available earlier, don't wait for us to ask. Our experience is that the Assessment will be more accurate if it is done shortly after an event. The longer you wait, the harder it is to re-construct what has happened.

Remember, the Community Impact Assessment is only a preliminary assessment of damages. It can be modified or updated, and it will certainly become more detailed once you've had a chance to carefully inspect damages. The information you provide at this point does not limit or determine the level of assistance that might be made available. A request from Manitoba EMO to provide a Community Impact Assessment 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.
