City of Gretna

DMS Secured $20 million in funding for the City of Gretna Louisiana after hurricane Katrina.

DMS has provided disaster recovery services to the City of Gretna continuously since hurricane Katrina. The city was besieged by severe wind and flood damage. DMS immediately deployed to perform damage assessments, review insurance policies, and assist on insurance settlements. The technical team reviewed FEMA Project Worksheets (PWs), wrote project worksheets, and performed Closeout. DMS’ exemplary performance resulted in contracts to closeout and provide recovery services for subsequent hurricanes, as well as a pre-position contract for future work.
