Environmental Assessment for Jefferson Davis Electric Cooperative, Cameron Parish, Louisiana (June 2011)The purpose and need for the proposed action is to restore the multi-structure facilities and electrical service lost on September 24, 2005 by Hurricane Rita which caused extensive damage in the state of Louisiana and resulted in a presidentially declared major disaster, FEMA-1607-DR-LA. Jefferson Davis Electric Cooperative (JDEC) - Cameron Service Facility is seeking federal grant funds to replace the critical infrastructure function and services to seven thousand (7,000) members/citizens who live and work in Allen, Calcasieu, Cameron and Jefferson Davis parishes of Louisiana. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA); the President’s Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500- 1508); and FEMA’s regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR 10.9).
Inter Tribal Emergency Response Commission, Homeland Security Director, Terence Bohl sent to Honorable Senator Lieberman a letter of support to Senate Bill 2283. The bill amends the Stafford Act to allow Tribes to choose whether to directly request a separate declaration or to receive assistance, as they do presently, under a declaration for a State.

The Community Preparedness Webinar Series: Collaborative Planning - Engagement of the Whole Community
Collaborative Planning: Engagement of the Whole Community provide an introduction to emergency planning, including an update on the changes to FEMA’s Comprehensive Planning Guide (CPG) 101 v.2.0 - the planning guidance for State, territorial, Tribal, and local planners. Key to emergency planning is the involvement of the entire community in both the planning process and implementation of the plan. Webinar participants will gain an increased understanding of the CPG 101 standardized planning process and how to engage the necessary individuals and groups as part of the planning team.
This document provides a quick reference to the guidance, authorization, and appropriation information found within the FOA.
Draft Environmental Assessment Satala Power Plant Replacement Island of Tutuila, American Samoa Territorial Office of Fiscal Reform American Samoa Power Authority December 2013Draft Environmental Assessment Satala Power Plant Replacement Island of Tutuila, American Samoa Territorial Office of Fiscal Reform American Samoa Power Authority December 2013///Through the American Samoa Territorial Office of Fiscal Reform, the American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA) has applied to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for funds to construct and operate a 23.5-megawatt (MW) power plant to replace the 23.5 MW of electrical power generation capacity lost when the Satala power plant was severely damaged by the September 29, 2009, earthquake, tsunami, and flooding disaster (FEMA-1859-DR-AS). Approval of this funding is a federal action subject to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA); thus, FEMA has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) in compliance with NEPA./This Draft EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch.

Background Reports: Metallurgy, Fracture Mechanics, Welding, Moment Connections and Frame Systems BehaviorIn response to structural concerns raised in the aftermath of the Northridge Earthquake of 1994, FEMA entered into a cooperative agreement with the SAC Joint Venture to perform a problem-focused study of the seismic performance of welded steel moment connections and to develop interim recommendations for professional practice. The design of moment frames for seismic loading relies upon the steel beams to form plastic hinges which dissipates the earthquake energy. The ductility and strength of the steel beam and the connection of the beam to the column govern the ability of the framing system to absorb the earthquake's energy. This report discusses the roll of the steel making practice upon the ductility and strength of the beam and the changes that are occurring in the production of hot rolled steel sections.
