FEMA wants to plan for motor coaches to evacuate people from disaster areas

Bus evacuation
exercise by FEMA

When a disaster strikes, it is sometimes vital to evacuate the local population from the affected area by using commercial buses.

FEMA has issued a presolicitation notice indicating that it might be looking for a consulting firm that can provide planning and operational support to facilitate such a “motor coach evacuation” of the general population in response to a presidentially-declared emergency or natural disaster within the continental United States.

The agency envisions an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with a one-year base period of performance plus four one-year option periods.

The presolicitation notice for the “full and open” competition was issued by FEMA’s response branch on October 29.

Further information is available from Kimberly Coakley, a contract specialist, at kimberly.coakley@fema.dhs.gov.
