- Our knowledge and proactiveness help you develop and implement a Total Solution® that unites the property insurance and FEMA portions of your disaster recovery into one financial recovery strategy for your immediate and long-term needs.
Your Insurance Settlement Is First
To prevent delay, an accurate understanding of your anticipated insurance settlement is necessary to help move your FEMA grant forward. The two processes take different perspectives on everything from what’s eligible to how it’s quantified. Our disaster recovery experts understand both the FEMA and insurance recovery processes and help you establish a well-documented insurance claim as the basis for your recovery.
The Right Foundation For Your Claim To FEMA
Successfully recovering all of your eligible costs requires a full understanding of not only the basics of the program, but of how insurance and FEMA complement one another. No one understands this interaction better than our team. We know the proper way to prepare project worksheets and what systems need to be in place to accurately track and account for all monies spent on the disaster.
We deliver this key knowledge and experience together with unwavering client advocacy to help you receive all the funding you are entitled to from both your insurance claim and FEMA.

Total Solution® Video
We had initially thought we would be able to assess the damage and work with FEMA and our insurance carrier's adjusters by ourselves. It quickly became evident that we were going to need help. We realized we did not have the personnel, time or expertise it was going to take to deal with complex governmental regulations and equally complex insurance and adjusting issues, especially when it was taking all the resources we had just to get essential county services up and running again...your organization really came to the rescue. You delivered what you promised, and that counts for everything down here in South East Texas.
The State of Alaska...[has] a significant investment in the disaster recovery process for both state and federally declared events.... The collaboration with Tidal Basin in these efforts has been so successful and seamless that in most instances applicants and FEMA staff don't even realize we have contractors on board unless we tell them. Our interaction with Tidal Basin staff and managers works and feels like true teammates and the result is a faster, more comprehensive delivery of disaster recovery resources to survivors.
Severe storms dumped massive amounts of rain in the Southern Tier of New York State in the summer of 2006, resulting in widespread flooding.
When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm. Located just 30 miles north of New Orleans, the two cities were both hit full-force by the destructive power of the hurricane. Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
