was a storm of unparalleled magnitude and left an estimated 23,000
Mississippi structures in need of some sort of roofing assistance.
FEMA has assigned the Operation Blue Roof mission to the Army
Corps of Engineers.
Estimates are that our roofing teams and contract partners will
be required to place about 2 square miles of the familar blue
plastic roofing over Mississippi structures over the next 60 days.
Gulf Coast residents can now sign up for the Blue Roof Program
as Sign Up Stations open in your county.
Please check this web site daily as we are opening new Sign Up
Stations and adding new information each day.
Additional counties are being added as the need is expressed by
county officials and additional team members arrive from our
national emergency response group.
Additional Blue Roof Sign Up Stations locations will be posted
on this website and released through local media and EOC outlets.
Mississippi residents or their agents (e.g. a neighbor or
friend) may file in any county where Sign Up Centers are active,
regardless of your county of residence, as long as the county
qualifies for this program.
You will be required to sign a right of entry form to allow us
to come onto your property to assess your structure and then
assign your job to our contract roofing team.
Operation Blue Roof is a priority mission managed by the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers for the Department of Homeland Security's
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The program provides assistance to storm victims in disaster
areas through the installation of rolled plastic sheeting on
damaged roofs, thereby helping to protect property and allowing
residents to remain in their homes.
Disaster experience has proven that it is more efficient for
residents to come to a servicing center rather than have limited
disaster workers go door to door when only 10% of home owners will
actually be in the home.
Corps roofing team members will go to the property, do a damage
and eligibility assessment, and give the roofing contractor a
tasking order. Property owners should expect work within 14 days
of the request.
Corps roofing team members will have proper identification and
uniforms. Citizens should not hesitate to ask persons approaching
their property for proper identification.
Hours of operation are generally 7-7. No one will be turned
away who is already in line at closing time.
