FEMA Establishes Debris Removal Registry

June 24, 2006 – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has launched a Debris Contractor Registry that will establish a nationwide list of debris removal contractors that can help communities better plan for and more rapidly respond to debris removal in times of disaster, according to a press release from the office of Delegate to Congress Donna M. Christensen.
Contractors can now register their businesses in the database by logging on the Web site: (there is an underscore between usp3 and nerr) and following the instructions. For those with questions or problems with the Web site, call 703-674-3003.
Companies interested in registering must have a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) to register. A DUNS will allow a business to get federal grants and allow the government to track distribution of monies. To obtain a number, call Dun & Bradstreet hotline at 1-866-705-5711. Virgin Islands residents can call 1-954-472-0732 to receive a number free of charge.
Federal Emergency Management Authority (FEMA) does not contract directly with businesses for debris removal services and does not endorse or recommend any contractor on the registry list. Contracts for these services are entered into by the local government. FEMA will reimburse eligible applicants for work that is completed by contractors.
For information, contact Shelley Thomas in Delegate Christensen's D.C. office at 202-225-1790.
