The FEMA website, FEMA.gov, was recently changed. The layout and aesthetic changed considerably, specifically how to locate the information related to FEMA’s Planning, Safety, and Building Science Division as well as how to access the free FEMA resources.
Everything pertaining to Building Science Branch, National Dam Safety Program, and the Earthquake & Wind Programs Branch can now be found under Emergency Management & Risk Management.
Additionally, resources can be accessed via the numerous publication libraries which can be seen in the right-hand navigation panel after navigating to one of the main pages:
Users can then scroll through the resources listed or use the search box at the top of each publication page and type in a specific title or an applicable search term. However, users cannot use multiple search terms or Boolean logic to refine searches.
Example: a homeowner interested in retrofitting their home to protect themselves from the flooding risks posed by hurricane could navigate to the Hurricane Publications page, type in a search term such as home or homeowner to find FEMA P-312: Homeowner's Guide to Retrofitting (3rd Edition).
