The mission of the Resilience Program at the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) is to implement design measures that will reduce the vulnerability of our Commonwealth assets to hazards (natural and manmade) through enhancements to the adaptive capacity of our facilities.
By enhancing the long-term integrity of our buildings and sites, DCAMM can ensure the continuous delivery of critical public services by the State’s agencies to the citizens of the Commonwealth.
As the real estate property manager for the Commonwealth, demonstrating leadership on this important issue will better establish our commitment to our user agencies and the critical services they provide.
Our objective is to identify and prioritize all Commonwealth properties relative their degree of likely impact by either a natural or manmade hazard and relative to the importance of their role in delivering Commonwealth essential services. Funding through Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has enabled DCAMM to work with Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) as well as partnering with agency stakeholders to provide content consisting of Mapping, Education, Best Practices, and further Funding.
