Default FEMA Contractors questions

Just to be clear hear I am not a carpet bagger POS.

However infrastructure will need to be repaired after this storm in Texas. I have a Florida EC license carry a ton of insurance etc. Will there be any need for Electrical/data/low voltage contractors after the storm?

We would be willing to work as a sub contractor for a Texas contractor or FEMA. Does anyone have any experience working with FEMA? All our government work has been military.

When we have hurricanes in Florida we had a ton of Texas roofing contractors here Florida working so just curious if it would be the same for ECs?

Shouldn't be a problem with licensing reciprocity. Check with tdlr. Can't hep with any FEMA info.

1. better bring your own place to live

2. better bring your own place to live

3. probably better be ready to deal with a LOT of paperwork to get paid for most jobs

insurance companies are going to be looking to say "flood damage....not covered" for a ton of stuff

4. probably be better off at least at first bringing in a dump truck and anything that shreds stuff especially stuff besides trees/wood

Lodging, fuel, food, inside hookup will be difficult to come by in the area. Figure you will be driving 2+ hours one way into Houston/Rockport for work for months. If you can get on the FEMA contractors approved list it might be worthwhile but you're going to jump through some major hoops.
