Tidal Basin has helped federal, state, local government and private sector clients identify and achieve their emergency management and disaster recovery goals. Few if any firms can match Tidal Basin’s integrated knowledge of the preparedness, response and recovery resources available from federal disaster relief and emergency management agencies such as FEMA, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the National Resource Conservation Service and the Department of Transportation.
In 2016, Tidal Basin expanded its scope of services and geographical reach by joining with Adjusters International (AI), the nation’s leading public adjusting organization. From terrorist attacks to hurricanes, explosions to earthquakes, fires to floods, AI has been helping clients recover from disastrous property losses since 1985 and has also provided expertise, advocacy and service to eligible public and not-for-profit entities seeking recovery through FEMA’s public assistance grant programs.
