Disaster Debris Monitoring Services
Debris removal generally accounts for the largest portion of disaster recovery costs yet also leads to the most federal funding being lost due to mismanagement. FEMA Public Assistance Grant Program guidelines require contracted disaster debris removal operations to be independently monitored, to certify that only "FEMA-eligible" debris is collected, debris truck-loads are documented and quantified, debris removal contractors are operating within the scope of their contracts and that their invoices reconcile with actual volumes of debris removed.
For even modest storm events, debris monitoring can be a daunting and formidable task for a local government to attempt with its own personnel, who may be unfamiliar with debris monitoring requirements and FEMA eligibility rules or predisposed attending to normal responsibilities. To alleviate some of the onus that monitoring requirements impose, and to reduce the risks of fraud or mismanagement, FEMA will reimburse Public Assistance applicants for the costs of professional debris monitoring services.
Our team of debris specialists has unparalled experience in FEMA-compliant monitoring of major disaster debris removal operations, including for Hurricanes Charlie, Jeanne, Frances, Wilma, Ike, Gustav, Katrina, Isaac, Sandy, Matthew and several tornado, flood and winter storm events.
