Abstract:

A study conducted by the North Carolina Division of Emergency Management determined that debris-removal from roads is twice as expensive as any other disaster relief activity, with 48% of all costs associated with federally declared disaster response going toward debris removal. Emergency management consultants can provide much- needed assistance in helping agencies to get their communities back on track once disaster strikes, as well as provide expertise in emergency planning prior to disasters. This article relates how the North Carolina Department of Transportation activated more than 300 contractual inspectors to monitor debris removal operations, coordinate with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) inspectors in dealing with reimbursement eligibility issues, and conduct post- disaster grant administration.
