DRM performed FEMA electrical construction inspection services on projects located in Rockaway Beach, New York which deals with the New York City commercial buildings and public schools damaged by Hurricane Sandy.  DRM along with State, DOE and SCA representatives inspect the commercial/school facilities as scheduled by PAC Coordinator. We inspect and verify the damages and the amount of restoration work (Electrical, architectural, civil etc.) required.  All findings are reported in the Project Worksheet document prepared by DRM. The condition assessments determine eligibility for assistance the facility can receive according to FEMA guidelines.  That will ultimately determine FEMA’s financial assistance to the facility.
