ICF Will Continue Support for FEMA’s Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently awarded ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a global consulting and technology services provider, a contract valued up to $20.8 million to support education and preparedness programs to protect communities living in proximity to the nation’s nuclear power plants. The Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program contract, which was awarded in the second quarter, has a term of five years including one base and four option years.
ICF has supported the REP Program since 2000, the first year the contract opened to the private sector. Since that time, the company has served as a trusted partner, helping FEMA and its state, local and industry partners by providing program management, policy analysis, training and exercise evaluations designed to protect the public health and safety of citizens living near the estimated 60 commercial nuclear power plants nationwide.
In addition to REP, ICF has long supported a range of national preparedness and community resilience programs for FEMA and its partners including incident management training development and delivery, program management for the national exercise program, regional disaster response planning in New York and Southern California, public health preparedness technical assistance and state-level disaster recovery operations management following major natural disasters.
“This win represents ICF’s enduring commitment to FEMA’s radiological preparedness program and to building resilient communities by preparing them for response and recovery from potential catastrophic events,” said John Paczkowski, senior vice president for ICF. “We are proud to help FEMA continue to implement this critical component of the National Preparedness System.”
FEMA established the Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program to ensure that state and local plans and preparedness can adequately protect the public health and safety of citizens living around commercial nuclear power plants.
