One often overlooked scenario of debris management is when force account resources are used for debris removal and disposal.  

Carlos Castillo recently appeared on ABC Action News in Tampa to discuss federal assistance for Hurricane Ian victims.

Hurricane Ian struck the western peninsula of Florida as a strong Category 4 storm, causing massive destruction to coastal communities and severe flooding throughout the state. Now Ian is taking aim at the Carolinas and other eastern seaboard states. The catastrophic devastation from Ian includes billions in property damages and unfortunately, loss of life. Immediate response efforts are still underway to locate and rescue people who are trapped. Soon, recovery will begin.

Your knowledge of the complex governmental regulations and equally complex insurance and adjusting issues really helped the county maximize the public assistance that was available after all of these disasters. You delivered what you promised, and we are confident in your ability and the ability of your firm to provide these services fully on a technical and professional level yet be able to translate clearly and concisely the intricate and sometimes subjective FEMA regulations which we could not have done without you.

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.

Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired your organization to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts….Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from you when we needed it most.
