Disaster/Contingency Response and Debris Removal
“The crew finishes up today. I know there is still another check of the site, and perhaps more work to be done, but I am grateful…. for the outstanding job, and that your employees came from a place of kindness and respect made all the difference." -D.L., Sonoma County Resident following the 2017 Northern California Wildfires
A Responsive and Experienced Disaster Recovery Contractor
When facing daunting recovery efforts, choosing a disaster recovery contractor becomes a critical decision. ECC's organization is aligned to effectively provide comprehensive incident response whatever man-made or natural disaster may occur. Our disaster recovery personnel possess the experience, cross-training, management, resources, and equipment necessary for fast response and effective recovery action.
An Advanced Contracting Initiative (ACI) Debris Mission contractor since 1999, ECC has responded to natural disasters and Federal emergencies locally and abroad. In 2002, for example, we provided emergency recovery efforts after two typhoons ravaged Guam under a $150 million Pacific Region Debris Contract. In 2005, we executed award-winning debris removal/hurricane relief activities valued at more than $650 million in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida following hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. In 2012, ECC executed six time-sensitive disaster recovery projects valued at $155 million in New York following Hurricane Sandy. In 2017, ECC performed a $450 million emergency response following devastation left after wildfires swept through Northern California with the US Army Corps of Engineers and California Office of Emergency Services. And currently, ECC is leading complex disaster recovery programs simultaneously across the US, including: cleanup following the Carr Fire in Shasta County, California; and repair and recovery following Hurricane Florence at Cherry Point and Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
