CAPCOG Disaster Debris Plan earns award

Monday, September 28, 2015

CAPCOG’s Disaster Debris Plan, which can be used by municipalities and counties, offers guidance via a template for a coordinated, quick, and succinct response to large scale, debris generating events by establishing a common and standardized approach to handling debris. The recently completed plan has earned national recognition for its contribution in strengthening economic resiliency in communities affected by disaster.

The National Association of Development Organizations announced in August CAPCOG’s Disaster Debris Plan will receive a 2015 Innovation Award. The plan, which was funded through Texas Homeland Security State Administrative Agency’s Regional allocations, was completed earlier in 2015 with help from regional stakeholders. It strives to allow local governments to hastily secure the public health, safety and welfare of a community; let communities realize their maximum disaster reimbursement; and sustain resiliency against debris negatively impacting their economies.
