Get a FORTIFIED Home™
Make your home stronger
and more resilient.
Homeowners who have received a FORTIFIED designation or contractors/builders who have worked on a FORTIFIED designation, please take the time to complete an evaluation of your FORTIFIED Evaluator. This will help us gain valuable feedback to help improve the designation process moving forward.
FORTIFIED Home™ is a set of engineering and building standards designed to help strengthen new and existing homes through system-specific building upgrades to minimum building code requirements that will reduce damage from specific natural hazards. The FORTIFIED Home™ program has three levels of designation—Bronze, Silver and Gold—that build upon each other, allowing you to choose the desired level of protection that best suits your budgets and resilience goals.
The FORTIFIED Home™ On the Go App is a mobile application for iPad tablets. It is an interactive tool for homeowners, builders, contractors and architects to use when building or retrofitting a single family home to make it a safer, stronger structure that is more disaster-resistant.
