Since the Common Ground Study, stakeholders participating on the Data
Reporting & Evaluation Committee have focused on developing a method
for national damage data collection. This goal is the driving
force behind the development of the Damage Information Reporting Tool
The Data Reporting & Evaluation Committee is the committee
responsible for the development and management of DIRT (www.cga-dirt.com).
DIRT provides a method for collecting damage data on a national
level. The data collected will be used to analyze root causes of
damages, conduct trend analysis, and asses educational programs.
To learn more about the committee's responsibilities and goals moving
forward, visit the DIRT section of the web site.
The committee is currently chaired by Donna Williams
(Pennsylvania 811, firstname.lastname@example.org)
and Jemmie Wang (USIC, JemmieWang@usicinc.com).
