What Does FEMA Stand For?

It stands for, Federal Emergency Management Agency.  It’s the government agency that helps local cities and counties with disaster recovery.  When a disaster hits the last thing you want to be concerned with is, “How are we going to file to get recovery money?!”  With PubWorks, we take that concern out of the picture and allow you to focus on the clean-up efforts everyone is depending on you for.

PubWorks does the hard work of managing your disaster recovery work, programming FEMA equipment rates, creating easy reports and getting you reimbursement money sooner.  Let PubWorks do your number crunching and report making in the recovery process.  That leaves you to focus your time on getting your city/county back on track.

Great news is that the Reporting capability comes standard with the PubWorks CORE Module – this is FEMA job costing software.  When a disaster strikes you’ll be able to get back on your feet faster with reimbursement money arriving sooner to help with the disaster recovery.

“PubWorks has been a lifesaver for me. When I started my job at Stillwater County we were in the middle of a big flood FEMA event.  Our guys had been doing emergency repair work on a lot of county roads. If not for the ease of data entry and the support from PubWorks I don’t know what I would have done.  My FEMA liaison was extremely impressed by the reports that are generated at the push of a button.“

–Cathy Nelson , Stillwater County, MT

“PubWorks broke down each task that was done during the disaster, and then our FEMA reps chose which of those tasks could be reimbursed. Before PubWorks that would have been really difficult, if we’d even have been able to do it.”

–Tina McComb, Reno County, KS
