Tidal Basin Capability Statement


Serving the Nation

When a disaster strikes, communities need to be empowered to facilitate their own recovery and work to enhance future resiliency. Since 1985, Tidal Basin’s staff has assisted communities with all phases of emergency management, both pre- and post-event.

  • States and local jurisdictions
  • Federal Government

  • Private sector clients

Tidal Basin provides the most comprehensive service offerings in the emergency management field.

We deliver knowledge and experience together with unwavering client advocacy to help you maximize all the funding you are entitled to receive from both your insurance carrier and FEMA grant programs.
