Remove imminent safety threats to the household and/or its occupants.
Loss of Shelter
Prevent the imminent total loss of shelter due to deterioration, fire, or catastrophe (where no alternate means of recovery or resources exists).
Block further deterioration of the home by protecting and preserving its structural integrity.

- other conditions that cause the improper exposure of the
house structure and/or components to moisture
