Default Storm cleanup?

After Gustav and now Ike does anybody have any FEMA contacts or know any contractors with a FEMA contract in place. I have several large excavators with thumbs, tree shears, and buckets. I also have 3 long reach excavators with 55'-60' of reach. I have large articulated 6 wheel trucks. I have small and large dozers with rakes. I have skid steers with grapple buckets, flat bed dump trucks, 963 and 973 loaders with rakes. All this equipment needs is something to do.

aside from the current, I believe fema carries a list of somesort of 'approved and preferred contractors" you'd be wise to get on the list so the next time this happens (and there will be a next time, dont know here but there will be) fema will call you.

On another thought...they really should do something about putting the displaced now unemployed people to work doing cleanup, these are the people that need the money. instead of giving them free money, make them work for it, plus the benefit of some of them learning new marketable skills. On top of that, if they have a labor intensive investment in their neighborhood, som of the deviants might take a little pride in it.

BE VERY CAREFULL WHO YOU DEAL WITH!!

An acquaintance of mine owns a huge clearing company here in OH. He sent several crews down to New Orleans after Katrina. He worked as a sub for a general with a Fema contract. The general never paid him, the figure was very staggering.
