Be Prepared: Disaster Response Contracting

Hurricane season is upon us and natural disasters can happen at any time. After a disaster hits, contractors hurry to the site to be a part of the clean-up effort. For those without experience, it can be a chaotic process and an unstable business move.

Be prepared for these unexpected natural disasters and set yourself up to respond appropriately with these tips.

  • Ensure you are registered with the appropriate federal, state, or local databases to be eligible to be awarded contracts.
  • Make sure your website is updated with accurate information, services and a sample of your work.
