Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has partnered with Orion Damage Assessment System to assist Camden County property owners with reporting property damage. Residents are encouraged to report damage in Camden County caused by thunderstorms, tornadoes, tropical storms, wildfires, or man-made incidents.
“We are excited to have this new tool available before the start of this year’s hurricane season,” stated Emergency Management Director Chuck White. “Although this tool will not only be used for hurricanes, knowing the location and severity of damage after any natural or man-made disaster helps accelerate the recovery process.”
When needed, Camden County residents should visit www.camdencountyga.gov/DamageReport to submit a damage assessment. Users will be asked for the address and if the property is residential or business. There are options to provide your contact information for Emergency Management staff and for you to upload pictures. Participants can review sample images to assist with selecting their damage level.
Once the citizen-reported damage is submitted, it is automatically mapped and assigned using the Orion Damage Assessment System. Self-reporting can quickly show where damage has occurred throughout the county, supports follow-up damage assessments by trained damage assessment teams, and ensures that appropriate types of resources are deployed into damaged areas to begin the recovery process.
“This is a great example of how we build resiliency by empowering our citizens,” added White.
