VEM and DEC Jointly Plan for Disaster Debris Management
Spurred by lessons learned in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, Vermont Emergency Management and the Department of Environmental Conservation jointly authored the Debris Management Annex to the State’s Emergency Operations Plan.
A key component of the Debris Management Annex is the procurement of contingency disaster debris management and debris monitoring contracts with national firms, which could be executed if local resources are exhausted. Both State Agencies and local governments can utilize these contractors when the contracts are effected.
