The Florida Division of Emergency Management provides technical assistance to local governments in the debris management process. This includes debris management planning prior to an event, assistance during debris management operations, and aiding in the closure of Public Assistance grants. Most of the unit’s technical expertise relates to FEMA’s Public Assistance program but the Debris Staff are available to help navigate state and local regulations, even in non-federally declared disasters.

- Review of Debris Management Plans and the Debris section of the CEMP.
- Provide information regarding the guidelines for debris operations under the Public Assistance Program as well as for other programs.
