Emergency Preparedness & Response

HURRICANE AWARENESS & EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

Hurricane season begins June 1st and we want to be the emergency board up and first responder of choice to you and your properties!

In 2005, we all witnessed the wide spread destruction and loss of life caused by Hurricane Katrina. Many of the avoidable injuries and deaths were due, in part, to poor or no planning, communication and coordination. As the adage goes: “If you fail to plan, then plan to fail.” In 2008, we all witnessed one of the largest & costliest hurricanes to hit the Texas coast in several decades, Ike. During the preparedness stage of these storms, FSI was called upon & immediately responded to an average of 21 leasing center & client residential board-up requests in the midst of an area evacuation covering Galveston, Fort Bend, Harris & Montgomery counties in less than 48 hours. A command center was established on the same grounds with the City of Houston & Harris County Command Centers with key personnel hunkering down & sitting the storm out. On the day after the storm, we were strategically positioned to immediately dispatch emergency clean up & recovery teams in order to eliminate any hazards or potential liabilities to several multifamily clients. Upon immediate notice, FSI recovery teams provided damage recovery, damage mitigation & industry accepted estimating services to first responder clients. Under the leadership of our VP of field operations, FSI was able to restore over 900 apartment units within 30 days after the storm using water extraction, restoration & climate controlled equipment to mitigate & restore property damage throughout the Greater Houston Area. We urge you to take full advantage of the emergency response program offered by FSI to ensure maximum protection from windstorms, floods & looters.

Call 713-690-5330 or email: service@fsiconstruction.com to register as a preferred emergency/disaster response client for the current season. Each calendar year requires registration renewal.
