Success Story: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
In 2005, the Gulf Coast was devastated by Hurricanes Wilma and Katrina. Following substantial destruction to the region, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) looked to quickly assemble resources to provide area survivors with food, water and clean-up materials.
Working with FEMA, DoverStaffing quickly mobilized to provide and manage more than 100 trained personnel to assist with the delivery of supplies from Atlanta to areas in and around the Gulf Coast. The Dover team managed the warehouse inventory and distribution logistics to ensure that all the materials arrived on time to their designated locations. In addition, the team organized and facilitated ongoing meetings with FEMA representatives to ensure problem-free execution.
DoverStaffing was able to assist more than 5,000 people within only a few weeks. The team successfully distributed food, water and other critical supplies to victims in a timely and efficient manner. As an added value, Dover provided the FEMA team leads with ongoing updates and recommendations to further streamline the distribution process.
