CDR Maguire Inc. was retained by Jackson County, Florida to assist in their recovery from severe storms and flooding that affected the Florida Panhandle in late April and early May of 2014. Numerous roads and crossings were damaged or completely washed away. The CDR Maguire Team provided FEMA Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation Support.
FEMA’s Preliminary Damage Assessment indicated that the County had experienced approximately $6 million in disaster related damages. While working with State and Federal counterparts, our team conducted over 1,000 site visits on over 825 miles of roadway within a three-month period that resulted in the identification of approximately $30 million in appended disaster related damages eligible for funding – five times greater than FEMA’s original estimate.
In addition, CDR Maguire worked with Jackson County to enter FEMA’s Sec 428 PAAP program which allowed for an expedited process and reduced administration during the recovery process.

CDR Maguire continues to support Jackson County to administer their PAAP Program as they are in the process of completing their permanent work projects.
