Workshop on being a FEMA vendor is today

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will host a workshop today for businesses interested in getting contracts to supply needed products and services for and during federal declared disasters.

Both FEMA and the Maui Emergency Management Agency prefer contracts to be awarded locally to reinvigorate affected economies after disasters, according to a news release from the county. Services and products that may be needed during an emergency event include, but are not limited to, generators, cargo vans, dumpsters, temporary labor, tents, janitorial services, heavy equipment, food services, office space and warehouses.

The free workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at the University of Hawaii Maui College’s Laulima Building, Room 225. To register or for more information, email emergency.management@mauicounty.gov.
