Was overall a memorable employment for helping the displaced people.
Inspector/first response FEMA (Former Employee) – Ocean Springs, MS – June 25, 2014
14- hour day for everyday, and no days off because we were to get as many people taken care of as quickly as we could for the amount of time we had to be employed and get the displaced people into trailers as quickly as possible. Drove about 300 miles a day over the coast of Mississippi. Co-workers were all sent into different directions on the map. We all stayed at the same hotel, so we would see each other before work, at work getting our instructions, and then after. The most enjoyable about the job, was the people very happy to get into their temporary trailer from FEMA and they would call to thank us for our help. I had to schedule times to meet with the people, have them sign documents for FEMA, then make sure the property was fit to have the trailer put on site. Needed to do blueprints of each site for the people bring trailers and how to set up. After trailer was set, I had to go back making sure they followed code, and take digital pictures of site, get all serial numbers, and do a GPS document with computer to give to FEMA everyday to download from Zip drive.
loved meeting all the people in Mississippi
Missed family being away for 6 months, but loved every minute of the time I was there.
