SERVICES

In April of 2021, CDR Maguire Emergency Management (CDR|EM) and 5 other companies were qualified by FDEM to provide debris removal monitoring services to the local and state agencies to assist with the removal of debris in the event of a disaster. After making landfall in western Cuba, Hurricane Ian restrengthened over the Gulf of Mexico and became a high-end Category 4 hurricane early on September 28, 2022. Later that day, Ian made landfall in southwest Florida on Cayo Costa Island. To date, Hurricane Ian has caused over 100 fatalities and catastrophic damages with losses estimated to be more than $50 billion. Damage was mostly from flooding, with the cities of Fort Myers Beach and Naples particularly impacted. Sanibel and Pine Island were hard hit by storm surge, causing severe damage to both the Sanibel Causeway and bridge to Pine Island. Between the winds and the unprecedented storm surge to Southwest Florida, thousands of boats were sunk or ended up on dry land, sea walls, or even on top of other boats and buildings. Boats of all kinds litter neighborhoods in the wake of Ian. In addition to the number of sunk, damaged, and displaced boats, the widespread flooding from Hurricane Ian damaged as many as 358,000 vehicles. 

Debris removal operations commenced on October 19, 2022, in Lee County to assist with the location, type, and ownership of derelict vessels, abandoned vehicles, and other personal property destroyed, damaged, or displaced by the storm.
