About Us

Message from the Project Manager

Thank you for visiting us on our website.

Since 1995, Parsons Brinckerhoff has supported the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a nationwide housing inspection services contractor. We are tasked to deploy qualified inspectors to an incident site after notification by FEMA to assess damages to homes and personal property throughout the U.S., its territories and protectorates. Currently in our fourth consecutive five-year contract, PB Disaster Services has performed over 4.9 million inspections in 49 states, Puerto Rico and Pacific territories in response to more than 300 disaster activations and 18 technical assistance task orders. Our partners at FEMA, and our dedicated team of hard working and skilled inspectors and project staff who continually go the "extra mile" are responsible for these remarkable achievements. We are not only recognized by FEMA for our project excellence, but also by Parsons Brinckerhoff as recipients of numerous corporate recognition awards.

Under our current contract, we changed our inspector cadre model to recognize our inspectors as employees. This enables us to provide our inspectors health and welfare benefits, liability insurance and workers compensation coverage, vacation compensation, expense reimbursement, paid training and much more! Not only do inspectors receive a fair hourly compensation, but we offer a comprehensive training program to prepare our inspectors for damage assessment inspection assignments. In addition, our performance bonus program rewards inspectors for the quality and timely completion of tasked work. We recently paid out $1.16 million in inspector bonuses in just one disaster deployment.

In preparation for hurricane season, we are actively looking for new and experienced inspectors to join us in providing quality and timely housing inspections services in support of FEMA’s mission. We seek individuals who will operate with excellence and with the highest ethical standards. We believe the inspectors on our team are the backbone of our business; we are committed to their success and will make every effort to best use their talents and skills. It is our desire to attract and retain the best people in the industry. I invite you to join our team.

Regardless of the reason you decided to visit our website today, we hope you come away with an understanding and appreciation of the kind of firm we are, the values we share, and the people we want on our team.

 

On behalf of WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff and PB Disaster Services,
