Default Hurricane clean up work

Looking for a contact for hurricane cleanup work. I am a clearing and grading contractor with equipment sitting because of bad weather in Georgia and looking for cleanup work for a couple of weeks and even through the fall.

Any suggestions?

Give it a day or two and head for the Gulf coast. You'll probably find more work than you can handle.

Call the army corp of engineers.... They maybe able to guide you in the right direction....

I just called them to shrink wrap my parents roof (for free) in FL from Hurricane Frances until they can get the contractor over and fix it....

That's the ticket!! Get signed up early before the scam artist get in and they freeze the contracts. I would contact FEMA they are throwing money around like crazy. Good Luck!

Take all the water and fuel you can handle. Load the truck slam full. Anything from toothpaste to toilet paper can go a long ways, besides it would show you're a good guy and remember a lot of people running the shows are locals. But OFCOURSE don't overcharge or they'll get you!
Just my 2 cents worth. More or less.

If you are intending in working in Florida, I don't know the procedure, but I would contact the state and request a license. Florida is REALLY cracking down on anyone attempting to contract work without a license. I know of at least a dozen incidents where crews were ordered off jobs, required to immediately on the spot provide full refunds of any deposits taken, and escorted out of town by the local law enforcement. This hardnosed approach was taken after too many gouging incidents were being reported. That's how it is here anyway.

Better to be safe than sorry. Just my two cents anyway.
