Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) are encouraging Texans to complete the voluntary Self Reporting Damage Survey to help the state identify damages across Texas and help emergency management officials see damages that occurred during the recent winter weather. This data is also needed to provide information to FEMA and highlight the need for federal disaster assistance for individuals.
The voluntary survey can be accessed by visiting: www.TDEM.texas.gov/warm.
"I urge Texans to fill out the Self Reporting Damage Survey and provide crucial information on the winter weather impacts to their home or property," said Governor Abbott. "The information gleaned from this survey will help our state identify the full impact of this winter weather and help emergency management better serve Texans."
A press release from Abbott’s office emphasized that reporting damage to TDEM is a voluntary activity, not not a substitute for reporting damage to an insurance agency and does not guarantee disaster relief assistance.
