Tetra Tech partners with U.S. state and local governments to manage and monitor disaster debris operations, focusing on compliance, safety, and technology to maximize federal reimbursement.

Tetra Tech provides critical support whether a community is responding to a large-scale natural disaster or facing a steady-state operational gap. We are available in as little as 24 hours to provide on-site or virtual staffing support in any emergency operations position or function.

Incident Management and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Support

When a large-scale disaster strikes, our clients often need to supplement and support their workforce with additional staff experienced in responding to real-world emergencies. This is especially critical when operations may continue for months, and local employees need time to care for their own families and well-being.

Disaster Debris Monitoring

Tetra Tech is Leading with Science® by providing disaster management, recovery, and reimbursement services to governmental clients throughout the United States for more than 20 years. We use our disaster response technology solutions, including our proprietary RecoveryTrac® system, to address the many operational challenges throughout the disaster recovery project life cycle. Our quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) standards and protocols also significantly reduce ticket errors and house all project data for real-time reporting and analysis. Tetra Tech guides communities to maximize the potential amount of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reimbursement for disaster-related costs.

We have collectively managed the recovery effort for 172 million cubic yards of debris, resulting in more than $12 billion in reimbursement costs to clients.
