Doing Business with FEMA Pre and Post Disasters

In preparation for pre and post disasters, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) seeks to educate suppliers who are interested in doing business with them about its procurement processes as well as products and services the agency purchases.

Some of the top commodities purchased to support disaster are:

  • Durable Medical Equipment Kits
  • Consumable Medical Supplies Kits
  • Plastic Sheeting
  • Water
  • Cargo Vans
  • Sign Language
  • Temporary Labor
  • Janitorial Services
  • Security Guard Services
  • Cots

The agency uses local vendors, whenever practical and feasible, within each disaster area for recovery-related purchasing.  Please join us at this FREE seminar and learn what opportunities are available for your small business.
