FEMA awards ICF $20 million Radiological Emergency Preparedness Contract
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have awarded ICF, a global consulting and technology services provider, a contract valued up to $20.8 million to support education and preparedness programs to protect communities living in proximity to the nation’s nuclear power plants. The Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program contract has a term of five years.
ICF have supported the Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program since 2000 and since then has supported FEMA and its state, local and industry partners by providing program management, policy analysis, training and exercise evaluations designed to protect the public health and safety of citizens living near the estimated 60 commercial nuclear power plants nationwide.
“This win represents ICF’s enduring commitment to FEMA’s radiological preparedness program and to building resilient communities by preparing them for response and recovery from potential catastrophic events,” said John Paczkowski, senior vice president for ICF. “We are proud to help FEMA continue to implement this critical component of the National Preparedness System.”
FEMA established the Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program to ensure that state and local plans and preparedness can adequately protect the public health and safety of citizens living around commercial nuclear power plants.
