Disaster & Event Information

In the event of a disaster or severe storm event, Cass County Emergency Management works in cooperation with tribal, township, and city agencies to collect, share and validate preliminary damage assessments for areas within their jurisdictions to be evaluated for state and/or federal assistance.

Additional information on preliminary damage assessments by local agencies for state and federal assistance can be found on the FEMA website.

Although not every incident will result in the need for state or federal assistance, Cass County Emergency Management has developed a standardized method for local agencies to collect and submit these damage assessments for evaluation.

Local Agencies

Local agencies are offered training on these standards to keep them informed and ready to respond following a disaster or severe storm. Although submission of damage assessments is limited to reporting agencies that have received training in the proper submission of preliminary damage assessments, the county does offer a public resource that can be used to review damage assessments within the county and reservation boundaries.

Further Information

If you would like more information on any of these resources or represent an agency that would be interested in participating in a future training event, please contact the Cass County Emergency Management Coordinator at 218-547-7437.
