Disaster Resistance

Welcome to the new Disaster Resistance tool! This tool can provide builders, remodelers, restoration contractors, and home owners with guidance on building, renovating, and restoring homes to be more resistant to natural disasters including hurricanes, high winds, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, and severe winter weather, and pests. Guidance is also provided for making homes more hospitable for an individual or for the entire family to shelter in place. This tool currently supports Hurricane/High Winds/Tornados, Flooding/Coastal Flooding and Earthquakes. However, content is being updated often, and content supporting all disasters will be added soon.

Click on the disaster types below to navigate to guidance for making every part of your home more disaster resistant.
