In the aftermath of any disaster, the most pressing issue is the return to normal operations. We stand ready to mobilize our staff to establish and manage emergency operations centers in response to any emergency or unforeseen condition. Our team of inspectors, environmental specialists, engineers, and planners perform immediate risk assessment and asset inventory, and use that information to develop facility restoration programs and community reconstruction zone plans. We have the expertise to guide clients through FEMA and other government reimbursement processes.
LiRo offers comprehensive knowledge and experience in disaster recovery and resiliency planning services. In just New York and New Jersey, LiRo has been part of significant transformational projects that includes 9/11 World Trade Center cleanup and subsequent recovery efforts and Hurricane Sandy-related work to revitalize more than 6,000 upstate and downstate locations. Our team has worked on infrastructure, redevelopment, and adaptive reuse programs and complex programs requiring extensive public outreach, planning, environmental, and economic impact studies.
This experience brings added value to our clients in their efforts to rebuild more resilient structures with FEMA and Community Development Block Grants-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to be better protected against future threats while introducing economic development opportunities to the impacted communities. Our team is knowledgeable in maximizing federal funding opportunities as well as providing assistance with program reporting and compliance.
Our scope and expertise includes the fullest range of disaster recovery services: planning, project worksheets, policies, strategic guidance, information management systems, estimating, program management, design, and construction management.
