Contractors managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers



Contractors managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers installed the final blue roof on Wednesday, Dec. 5 in the 12 Florida Panhandle counties most impacted by Hurricane Michael. The storm made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida on Oct. 10. The Corps installed the first blue roof in Florida on Oct. 19 and over 7,800 blue roofs in Florida in 47 days.
USACE blue roofs are contractor-installed, reinforced plastic coverings secured by wooden strips held in place by nails or screws on storm-damaged homes that allow residents to shelter in place in their own homes.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
