About Emergency Management and Response

At EMR we pride ourselves on being able to respond quickly to our customers’ emergencies, regardless of when or where they happen. EMR offers the quick response that can only be provided by in-house emergency response capabilities for major and minor spills, storms, derailments and other incidents. We also maintain an extensive network of contractors, which gives us the ability to increase staff and equipment levels for events that exceed our in-house capabilities.

EMR has provided field services to our customers throughout our 26-year history, including FEMA funded projects in response to natural and industrial disasters, with proven rapid response capabilities for help when and where it’s needed. We have the ability to manage emergencies from the initial phone call through reconstruction and restoration, including permitting, repairing and restoring disaster interrupted infrastructure, providing temporary or permanent structures and facilities, and sampling and remediation services.

Hurricane Response — Debris removal and hauling, debris management and tracking, levee repair, railroad bed repair and seawall repair.

Safety Services — Safety consulting and oversight, safety auditing, construction safety training, environmental safety training, industrial hygiene training, OSHA training and 24-hour turnaround services.

Emergency Response — Petroleum, PCB and bulk commodity release response; hazardous materials response and cleanup; emergency response management; emergency response sampling and reporting; naturally occurring radioactive materials and hazardous materials management; bridge and culvert replacements; open water emergency response; and emergency Federal and State permitting.
