Emergency Management Planning

Our experts assist customers in planning and preparing for disasters by reviewing existing plans, developing new comprehensive plans and performing preparedness drills and exercises.  


In actual response to disasters, we deliver experienced management, staff and contractors to assess damage, estimate costs to repair and remove hazards and debris. We also stabilize damaged assets and perform interim repair of equipment, buildings, housing and infrastructure as needed to restore basic function and protect these assets from further damage.  


For long-term recovery from disasters, our teams negotiate funding with insurance companies and government agencies and we implement more resilient permanent repairs through structured program and construction management practices. We have particular expertise in working with FEMA and HUD recovery programs nationwide, and we have operationalized some of the largest recovery programs in U.S. history.

CB&I maintains a 24-hour emergency response phone line for rapid mobilization to environmental and disaster-related issues nationwide for our customers. We offer spill response cleanup, fixed-facility response, water/wastewater treatment, soil and groundwater remediation, and hazardous materials transport and disposal. 

We understand the logistics support and responsibilities that are necessary for successful rapid-response services. From investigations and remediation efforts to complex site closures and property restoration, CB&I applies advanced technology and industry-leading resources to provide a comprehensive life cycle of services to effectively mitigate damage associated with emergency situations.
