DMS’ primary strength is the experience of our diverse and qualified management team, many of whom held important positions with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and various states. Our senior team has unparalleled experience not only in financial recovery but also in utilizing FEMA policies to repair and replace structures using sustainable mitigation strategies.
DMS manages the complex process of disaster recovery. Our team’s robust knowledge of FEMA Public Assistance (PA), mitigation, insurance, and other funding sources and our experience working with state and federal governments are put to work daily to assist our Public Sector clients to plan for, prepare and recover from natural and man-made disasters.
Putting together an effective strategic plan pre-disaster will save a significant amount of time and money on the back end and positions our clients to be audit proof. Effective planning integrates various operational departments including facilities, emergency management, risk management and finance.
A critical piece of that plan is the document retention system. This protocol ensures that the applicant can meet its operational objective to protect the health and safety of the population, and also track all eligible costs for reimbursement.
It is necessary to be pro-active by taking immediate protective measures to control and minimize damages. Initial damage assessments, immediate needs funding and temporary facilities are all things that must be addressed from the immediate aftermath of a disaster. We understand how to navigate the system and can respond to a federally declared disaster or emergency within hours to assist our clients. By approaching the process with an experienced and balanced group of professionals comprised of former FEMA executives, accomplished industry engineers, licensed architects, project managers, insurance professionals, eligibility and technical specialists, the end result will be a successful recovery.
