    fema has a website just search the web for it. I have done lots of work down in the costal regions.i have always got paid thru the homeowner which in return gets paid thru his insurance company or fema.Its alot of work but is very lucrative.I did tree work an clean up work when i was down there an there will be work down that way for the next 5 years.If you can get in with an insurance company ,thats where you wanna be because the work is endless. I hope this helps good luck george

    they require you to be insured minimum 1 million dollar general liability,they usually reqiure an occupational license in the city your working in or near.Them are the only 2 requirments that i have ever needed. hope that helps,,,george

    After being where landfall took place for 4 months (Waveland MS) I would suggest to get ahold of some town/city halls-Mayors offices etc where you want to work. They should be able to direct you on who to call but don't ask dumb stuff like what insurance. They don't know. The people you want to talk to knows. I have a 5 million policy and another 1 mill on my vehicle.
