Temporary Housing Unit Deactivation

In response to housing needs created by Hurricane Ike, FEMA provided over 3,700 Temporary Housing Units which were placed either on the survivor's property, in a commercial mobile home park or in a FEMA constructed Community Site throughout Texas. As families find a more permanent solution to their living arrangements the temporary units are deactivated and removed. This video shows the steps of breaking down these units and the elements involved in originally securing these temporary homes when first brought on site. - Location: Galveston, TX
