Disaster Recovery

While natural disasters capture headlines and national attention short-term, the work of RECOVERY is long-term.

Disaster Recovery Planning

Disaster Recovery planning and strategies focus on responding to and recovering from disasters—events that disrupt or completely stop life and business as we know it.

When and where needed, the Storm First Responder Disaster Recovery Team is called into action. This recovery team mobilizes from across the country to support large-scale, natural disaster damage events.

After a natural disaster, knowing where to start can be difficult.

When hurricanes and typhoons strike, their volatility and unpredictability can leave many in peril, especially when storms follow in close succession. Recovery from such a disaster can take years.

Communities often face challenges understanding and accessing federal programs meant to aid recovery, while facing obstacles like displacement and power outages. And, as we’ve seen in the wake of Hurricane Ian in Florida, individuals may also struggle navigating insurance policies. This is where Storm First Responders can be an invaluable asset to communities and individuals.

Here at Storm First Responders, we are committed to providing rapid and effective responses to meet the challenges facing communities in the wake of natural disasters. Our company is focused on strong leadership and dynamic execution of the recovery process. With extensive experience in disaster relief coupled with our ability to both self-perform work immediately and engage a network of hundreds of subcontracting partners, Storm First Responders is a trusted partner with an unmatched record.

Types of Disasters

Types of disasters can include: 
  • Natural disasters (for example, earthquakes, floods, tornados, hurricanes, or wildfires)
  • Pandemics and epidemics
  • Other intentional, human-caused threats such as terrorist or biochemical attacks
  • Technological hazards (for example, power outages, pipeline explosions, and transportation accidents)

Overview on How Disaster Recovery Works

Disaster Recovery Strategy

First in, last out!

Storm First Responders are usually the first on the scene following a disaster and among the last to leave.  In fact, our Educational Preparedness Programs are implemented as soon as there are indicators of an approaching storm to a community.  This greatly minimizes loses and causalities.  We are among the last to leave because historically out of state contracts are among the first to leave.  This leaves homeowners and communities in the lurch, creating unnecessary hardships.

Our job is NOT over until the community and homeowners are made whole again. While others move on, we remain!  This is our commitment to those we serve, and this is what separates us from other companies that follow profits over commitment.
