Disaster Response is only as good as the damage we can prevent or mitigate before the event or how quickly we can restore critical infrastructure after the disaster event. It doesn't matter that we've been around for over two decades, have been involved with nearly every hurricane since Andrew destroyed Miami, have over 200 years of combined experience. History is important, but what we do today to mitigate your damages matters most, and we realize that.

The complex nature of disaster and emergency response makes it imperative to have an integrated, efficient team of experts managing a project.  Maverick's Disaster and Emergency Response professionals also possess an in-depth understanding and extensive experience in the various regulatory and environmental conditions impacting emergency management and hazard mitigation, particularly in Emergency Flood Protection, Marine Operations, Debris Management & Reduction, Infrastructure Redevelopment and Dredging operations.

The only way to create disaster plans and get the job done every time is with great people who not only have the right skills and experience but truly enjoy their job, so we make sure we only hire the best. Talent goes beyond a keen eye for design or a qualification on a piece of paper. As cheesy as it sounds, we live and breathe what we do, we're enthusiastic and take pride in doing the best work we can……..every time!

If you think we might be able to help you, your community or agency with Disaster Planning, Prevention, Response, Recovery, Financing or a mixture of them all, then we'd love to hear from you.

Email or call us and we'll get help to you right away.


See ya soon,
