FEMA also procures goods and services through the General Service Administration’s Federal Supply Schedule, www.gsa.gov/regions.htm, and identifies qualified small businesses through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Pro-net. Companies can register with Pro-Net on the SBA’s website (www.sba.gov http://www.sba.gov).
In addition, state and local governments make purchases for disaster recovery services and products. Check the emergency management or other appropriate websites of the affected states for information.
FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. FEMA also initiates mitigation activities, trains first responders, works with state and local emergency managers, and manages the National Flood Insurance Program and the U.S. Fire Administration.
