2 This is our home, too. Super Storm Sandy triggered flooding and fires, devastating the Breezy Point neighborhood in Queens, New York, U.S.A. Photo: Associated Press When disasters strike, we are all impacted. But few are poised to lead the efforts to recover, rebuild and revitalize like AECOM. At AECOM, we combine technical excellence and innovation, delivering focused expertise and creative solutions across such varied markets as transportation, facilities, energy, environment, water, construction and program management. Our network of 45,000 professionals is based in more than 400 offices and 140 countries. With more than 15,000 professionals in the United States, we live and work where you do. We are personally committed to the longterm sustainability of all the places we call home. Our collective local knowledge, specialized resources and global reach have made us an industry leader in developing holistic solutions that meet the needs of communities in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. Nowhere is this depth of experience more readily apparent than in the area of comprehensive disaster recovery, mitigation, emergency management and planning support services.

3 People walking through a flooded street in Hoboken, New Jersey, U.S.A. Photo: Associated Press AECOM is uniquely positioned to serve throughout the life-cycle of a disaster. Our specially trained teams can mobilize immediately, speeding the recovery and rebuilding process after disaster strikes. We understand the risks of disaster, from preparedness response to recovery and mitigation and work with governments, agencies and municipalities to protect communities in the first place. Building on lessons we ve learned from other disaster events, we offer a broad perspective that can help you cost-effectively and sustainably rebuild transit, tunnel, bridges, roadways and ports; power, water, wastewater and other utility systems; public buildings such as courthouses, police and fire stations; public recreational areas and beachfront; housing; schools; religious and medical facilities. AECOM has a history of working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that stretches back more than 15 years and encompasses services that involve state and local governments and private non-profit organizations that require recovery assistance for public infrastructure, such as schools, hospitals, courts, firehouses, government buildings, roads, bridges and utilities. Our highly trained local staff engineers, architects, planners, program managers, construction managers, safety coordinators, cost estimators, economists, insurance analysts, environmental specialists, debris specialists, climate change scientists and sustainability experts are ready to provide you with an unmatched presence and expertise not just fixing, but improving your infrastructure, buildings and environs so you are more resilient and better prepared to recover in the wake of a future disaster.
