Proven Disaster Response Expertise

At TFR, we address the needs of our clients long before the establishment of a relationship. Every project is different. Every state, county or city, desire and highlight different aspects of disaster relief and recovery that they deem MOST important. With this ever-changing landscape in mind, TFR continually stresses the proper due diligence and planning to fully comprehend the type of service that each client desires. We routinely review and scrutinize our operational and management plans to assure that we present the most practical, efficient structure to complete the project. TFR’s knowledgeable management team retains over 90 years of combined experience responding to hurricanes, floods, and other various disasters. Pre-planning allows TFR to respond to any project rapidly and efficiently in any location should the need arise.

In September 2018, TFR partnered with North Carolina DOT to plan and execute emergency cut and shove services for six counties. After review, the team determined each county needed 30 push crews with a crew defined as four people: a bobcat with operator, two saw men/flaggers, and one supervisor with a pickup.

TFR activated resources from its extensive database on standby: 180 bobcats and 720 personnel, which were on site and working within 24 hours. Immediately upon Florence’s winds reducing to less than 40 mph, resources were mobilized to their assigned county to begin clearing roadways. This was one of the largest and most expedient push crew responses in TFR’s 30 years of disaster response.

During the 2017 Hurricane Season, which saw major damages from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, TFR performed work simultaneously in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. In addition, the Army Corps of Engineers activated our ACI Standby Debris Removal contract to assist with severe weather conditions that led to devastating mudslides. TFR received exceptional ratings on both Contractor Performance Assessment Reports from USACE.

All in all, as a result of the four storms that struck that year, the total amount of debris handled by TFR exceeded 3,500,000.00 cubic yards.
