Appendix A. Guidance for Supporting Photographs for EHP Grant Submissions
Photographs are a vital component of the EHP review process and add an additional level of understanding about the nature and scope of the
project. They also provide pre-project documentation of site conditions. Please follow the guidance provided below when preparing
photographs for your EHP submission. The following pages provide examples of best practices used in earlier EHP submissions.
Minimum requirements for photographs
1. Photographs should be in color.
2. Label all photographs with the name of facility, location (city/county, state) and
physical location (physical address or latitude-longitude).
3. Label the photographs to clearly illustrate relevant features of the project, such as
location of installed features (e.g., cameras, fences, sirens, antennas, generators)
and ground disturbance. See examples below.
4. Identify ground disturbance. Adding graphics to a digital photograph is a means to
illustrate the size, scope and location of ground disturbing activities.
Best Practices
1. Provide photographs in a separate file.
2. Place no more than 2 pictures per page.
3. Compressing pictures files (such as with Microsoft Picture Manager)1 or saving the file in PDF format will reduce the size of the file and
facilitate e-mail submissions.
4. Identify the photograph file with the project name so that it can be matched to the corresponding FEMA EHP screening form.
5. Maximum file size for enclosures should not exceed 12 MB. If the total size of files for an EHP submission exceeds 12 MB, send the
submission in multiple e-mails.
6. If necessary, send additional photographs or data in supplemental e-mails. Please use the same e-mail subject line with the additional
label: 1 of x, 2 of x, . . . x of x.
Options for Creating Photographs
1. Obtain an aerial photo. There are multiple online sources for aerial photographs.
2. For the aerial photo, use the screen capture feature (Ctrl + Print Screen keys) and copy the image to photo editing software, such as
Paint, or PhotoShop.1 Use that software to crop the image so the photo has the content necessary.
3. Open PowerPoint, or other graphics-oriented software, and paste the aerial or ground-level photograph on the canvas.
4. Use drawing tools, such as line drawing and shapes, to indicate the location of project features (for example: fencing, lighting, sirens,
antennas, cameras, generators).
5. Insert text to label the features and to label the photograph.
6. Use drawing tools to identify ground-disturbing activities (if applicable).
7. Save the file with the project name or grant number so that it can be appropriately matched to the corresponding FEMA EHP screening
form. Include this file with the EHP screening when submitting the project.

Example Photographs
Aerial Photographs. The example in Figure
1 provides the name of the site, physical
address and proposed location for installing
new equipment. This example of a labeled
aerial photograph provides good context of
the surrounding area.

Ground-level photographs. The ground-
level photograph in Figure 2 supplements
the aerial photograph in Figure 1, above.
Combined, they provide a clear
understanding of the scope of the project.
This photograph has the name and address
of the project site, and uses graphics to
illustrate where equipment will be installed.

Ground-level photograph with equipment
close-up. Figure 3 includes a pasted image
of a CCTV camera that would be placed at
the project site. Using desktop computer
software, such as PowerPoint,1 this can be
accomplished by inserting a graphic symbol
(square, triangle, circle, star, etc.) where the
equipment would be installed. This example
includes the name and location of the site.
The site coordinates are in the degree-
minute-second format.

proposed equipment installation.
Ground-level photograph with excavation
area close-up. The example in Figure 4
shows the proposed location for the concrete
pad for a generator and the ground
disturbance to connect the generator to the
building's electrical service. This information
can be illustrated with either an aerial or
ground-level photograph, or both. This
example has the name and physical address
of the project site.

Figure 5 supports a project involving
installation of equipment on a tower.
Key elements are identifying where
equipment would be installed on the
tower, name of the site and its
location. This example provides site
coordinates in decimal format.

The example in Figure 6 shows the
use of graphic symbols to represent
security features planned for a
building. The same symbols are used
in the other pictures where the same
equipment would be installed at other
locations in/on the building. This
example includes the name of the
facility and its physical address.

Ground-level photographs of nearby historic structures and buildings. Consultation with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO)
may be required for projects involving structures that are more than 50 years old, or are on the National Register of Historic Places. In that
event, it will be necessary to provide a color, ground-level photograph of each side of the building/structure.
