Preventing and responding to disasters can be very difficult and resource-intensive ordeal. As a result, various government agencies and institutions look to help in the private sector when preparing for and dealing with emergencies.

New England Area is receiving a winter season that can only be summed up in two words: Record Breaking. Local forecasters are stating that February 15th, 2015 was the snowiest day in the history of Boston, Massachusetts. Hundreds of flights were cancelled in the Boston area and over 1,900 flights nationwide. Gov. Charlie Baker ordered all cars off the road and shut down the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority which included all bus, rail and ferry services. The news report even stated, “Massachusetts called up hundreds of National Guard troops to assist with snow removal, and the Hanscom Air Force base outside Boston became a staging area for heavy equipment pouring in from eight other northeast states to help in the effort.” Massachusetts has received over seven feet of snow in the last three weeks and is looking for contractors to assist in the relief efforts immediately.

FEMA Contract Registration will be properly registering companies with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to assist with aide for New England States snowfall relief. In the case of the Massachusetts blizzard, construction companies, tree removal companies and even janitorial companies could be looking at a possible multimillion dollar pay off. Companies that have the manpower and equipment to assist in the disaster relief efforts will have the opportunity to win government contracts. Every State must hire privately held companies to assist in the relief efforts of natural disasters such as hurricane, tornado's, floods and snow storms.

Often, no-bid contracts are awarded by contracting officers who simply call one or two businesses who have profiles in Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS). If the businesses already have their registration taken care of, they could receive a contract on the spot. If not, the contracting officer is likely to just call the next number on their list. Businesses will miss their opportunity if they are not prepared for federal work at all times.

FEMA Contract Registration has assisted thousands of businesses with their government registration and FEMA registration to assist in the disaster relief efforts. Businesses can have a professional Procurement Specialist from FEMA Contract Registration to help determine if their business is prepared and compliant for government contracting in the federal marketplace.
