SARASOTA, Fla. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Operation Blue Roof program is in full production, installing about 800 blue roofs per day, providing homeowners impacted by Hurricane Ian a temporary solution that protects their property, and allowing them to remain in their home as they continue to recover.
The Operation Blue Roof program is a NO COST - FREE service for homeowners, and the deadline to apply is Oct. 23.
A resident begins by submitting a Right of Entry (ROE) request through the blueroof.us website, calling 888-ROOF-BLU (888-766-3258), or visiting one of the many sign-up locations located throughout the approved counties. A list of current sign-up locations can be found on the Blue Roof website.
Operation Blue Roof is a priority mission managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for FEMA. The goal of the Blue Roof program is to provide homeowners in disaster areas with fiber-reinforced, industrial-strength sheeting to protect storm-damaged roofs until homeowners can make permanent repairs.
