Course Description:

G202 – Debris Management Planning Course for State, Tribal, and Local Officials

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as well as State, Tribal, and local governments, have become increasingly aware of the importance of providing clear and consistent guidance to communities on debris planning, response and recovery  issues, and on FEMA eligibility and process requirements of debris removal activities. The cost of debris removal continues to rise, conflicts have arisen with community’s methods of contracting for and monitoring debris removal operations and methods of disposal are often found not to comply with environmental laws and regulations. As a result, Public Assistance (PA) applicants are often not receiving the full PA funding for which they would otherwise be eligible.

FEMA recognizes that effective planning and management of debris issues require extensive training and experience. As a result, this course is designed to provide our State, Tribal, and local partners, training that is nationally sponsored.

The goal of the course is to enable State, Tribal, and local government officials to successfully plan for, respond to, and recover from a major debris-generating event.


  • Apply knowledge of planning for, implementing, and managing debris activities, including issues associated with environmental and historic preservation considerations, debris forecasting and estimating, debris contracting, Debris Management Site evaluation, operation, and debris monitoring.
  • Apply knowledge of FEMA eligibility and reasonable costs criteria as pertinent to presidentially declared events.
  • Address debris planning and response and recovery activity issues.
