Storm Damage Assessment
Storm Damage Assessment is used for those situations where major network damage is present. The information is collected and reported to the operators from field crews. An optional method of recording and reporting makes use of mobile devices in the hands of field survey personnel who record on mobile forms the scope of the surveyed damage. The information is uploaded to the OMS automatically where it is displayed on the operator’s map and on the OMS Damage summary display for each recorded damage location.

The system can extrapolate the damage surveyed versus the entire area damaged in order to derive an assessment figure. The information is used to better manage the resources and to speed recovery.
