Debris Management Plan Template

The templates included in this packet will assist jurisdiction’s with the assembly of a comprehensive Debris Management Plan which can, if given the time and effort to tailor the plan to your specific needs, will prove to be a valuable tool when disaster strikes.

A Disaster Debris Management Operating Plan should cover the response and recovery to debris-causing incidents within a jurisdiction’s boundaries. The plan should also cover additional tasks required to maintain jurisdictional disaster debris management readiness, including training, exercises, and plan maintenance.

The templates and instruction documents within this template provide draft and sample language along with instructions for those writing an operational disaster debris management plan.

The entire template was designed as a guideline and can be changed as necessary. Areas that are highlighted will require customization by each jurisdiction to reflect their jurisdiction’s specific needs. You will need to modify as appropriate for your jurisdiction or area.
