Accela Opens Access to Rapid Damage Assessment Solution for Affected Communities

In the aftermath of Tropical Storm Florence in the Carolinas, we want to help our customers and all communities who have been impacted. As we have done during and after other natural disasters, Accela is offering every impacted jurisdiction free access to our Rapid Damage Assessment (RDA) cloud solution to streamline the inspection efforts necessary to get displaced residents back into their homes quickly and safely.

The RDA cloud solution includes:

  1. Mobile inspections
  2. Bulk Inspection record creation and assignments
  3. Public-facing portal for reporting of RDA results by address and area
  4. Streamlined FEMA relief reporting

Accela was proud to work with the City of New Orleans in a similar relief effort after Hurricane Katrina where the solution played a significant role in decreasing the timeline of New Orleans’ damage assessment work, and we offered access to our Rapid Damage Assessment solution after the hurricanes in Eastern Texas and Florida last year.

If you are a jurisdiction in need of building inspection assistance after Tropical Storm Florence, please contact us at We will work to quickly get your community set up for inspections and help ensure a safe return to the structures that house your most valuable asset, your citizens.

Your community is in our thoughts and its recovery is one of our most important priorities. Let us know if we can help.
