MORE THAN 75 YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE IN DISASTER RECOVERY
ROSTAN deployed to New Jersey subsequent to Superstorm Sandy making landfall on October 29, 2012. Within days, ROSTAN was contacted by representatives from Brick Township to provide immediate response, and was on-site the next day certifying contractor equipment to begin debris removal operations.
ROSTAN provided an array of post-disaster debris management services throughout the municipality including damage and debris assessments and quantifications, monitoring of right-of-way debris and hazardous tree removals, and complete oversight and management of all facets of private property debris removal and structure demolitions. With a local staff of more than 50 trained debris monitors and field supervisors, ROSTAN monitored the removal of almost 340,000 cubic yards of debris and additionally the final disposal of over 31,000 tons of debris across multiple project phases extending over 18 months. ROSTAN staffed and managed over 15 debris management sites where the debris was hauled throughout the project.
In a secondary phase, ROSTAN fully coordinated and oversaw 111 private property debris removal and demolition assignments on behalf of Brick Township. ROSTAN assisted the Township in the collection, verification and validation of rights-of-entry and hold- harmless agreements related to private property debris removal (PPDR) operations approved by the FEMA coordinating officer. ROSTAN performed property evaluations and pre- and post-work assessments on all private property work sites. ROSTAN was solely responsible for coordinating with all federal and state agencies throughout the project, and maintaining all relevant property records. In addition, ROSTAN provided assistance to the Township in recovery of funds allocated by insurance companies in effort to prevent duplication of benefits for FEMA purposes.
In addition to our debris monitoring and demolition oversight management services, ROSTAN led Brick Township’s public assistance efforts. To date, FEMA has approved and obligated over $15 million in emergency response, debris management and permanent projects and mitigation. The Township leads the State of New Jersey in reimbursement dollars and was randomly selected to be audited by the Bureau of Homeland Security, Office of the Inspector General (OIG). The OIG audit has not resulted in deobligation of any funds while we worked hand-in-hand with their auditing team to ensure that they had all requested documentation in a timely manner.
