Randall-Reilly editors launch Contractor Disaster Resources website

On May 3, the editors of Randall-Reilly’s Equipment World, Better Roads and ProPickup magazines launched the Contractor Disaster Resources website at www.equipmentworld.com/disaster. At first, we will concentrate on Alabama tornado resources, but our ultimate goal is to have a web resource for contractors who want to respond to disasters when and wherever they happen across the United States.

Initially, we will provide the following information:

  • What’s happening with debris removal contracts.
  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA registration process for contractors who want to be considered for this work.
  • Contractor contacts.
  • A “thank you” section recognizing contractor and corporate  equipment contributions.
  • And for our friends in the mass media: A construction machine pictorial, to help reporters identify come basic construction equipment types.
  • Slide show of ongoing disaster relief efforts.
  • A question/comment section for contractors and others.

You can help out our efforts by sending us:

  • Links to any disaster response information you may have on file that’s still current.
  • Contacts who are ready to assist contractors in disaster-related work.
  • Press releases on disaster equipment contributions (moving forward only, please).
  • Any suggestions you may have to further enhance our mission, including expansion to other geographical areas.
