Huitt-Zollars worked with Galveston County and other consultants to prepare a plan for conducting FEMA Residential Substantial Damage Estimates (RSDE) assessments. Within 24 hours of notice-to-proceed (NTP), Huitt-Zollars mobilized six two-man RSDE teams. These teams first conducted a windshield survey of the disaster area to determine the magnitude of the RSDE effort. Following this survey, the teams then conducted door to door assessments of all residential and commercial properties within the floodplain and coastal areas in the Bolivar Peninsula area. A total of 1,200 properties were assessed. Swift completion of this work was critical as assessments had to be conducted because residents could not get their power restored to their homes until the reports had been filed with the County.
