FEMA P-85, Protecting Manufactured Homes from Floods and Other Hazards (2009)

Cover photo for the document: FEMA P-85, Protecting Manufactured Homes from Floods and Other Hazards (2009)
FEMA P-85 has been updated to reflect the requirements of the most current codes and standards and to provide a best practices approach in reducing damages from natural hazards. While the original version of FEMA 85 concentrated on flood and wind events, this version also addresses seismic hazards and recommends several multi-hazard resistant foundation designs. Designs are included for wood-framed foundations, conventional concrete and masonry pier foundations, and ground anchors. The ground anchor foundations are based on results from a series of first-of-its-kind saturated and dry soil anchor tests.
