Fostering Collaborative Emergency Management

Disaster Response and Recovery Support Services for Hawaii

Hawai‘i has suffered many back-to-back disasters. After dealing with staff turnover and retirements of mitigation staff, the state asked Tidal Basin to assist with managing the mitigation program at Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency (HI-EMA).

The State of Hawai’i required a wide range of disaster recovery support services on an emergency standby basis. Under this contract, the state required assistance with FEMA Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation program services. Tidal Basin is currently assisting the state today.
