Orlando, Fla. – After Hurricane Irma devastated parts of Florida, the federal government turned to Orlando’s REDCON Solutions Group to protect their FEMA centers.
Now, Florida’s Division of Emergency Management has expanded the contract to assist their emergency centers.
With the expansion, 150 new jobs have been created by REDCON under this contract in just three weeks.
“I am honored REDCON was selected to support the state and Federal government to provide emergency relief to help Floridians recover from this devastating storm,” says Kyle Evans, president & founder of REDCON. “As a Central Florida resident and Florida business owner, I am anxious to do whatever is necessary to get help to those who need it. I take great pride in my team and their abilities to secure and support the efforts of FEMA.”
REDCON is a service-disabled veteran-owned business. The company has been a client of the UCF Business Incubation Program for nearly two years.
Nearly 40 counties in Florida have been designated for federal disaster assistance by FEMA due to the impacts of Hurricane Irma. REDCON has started deploying officers at centers already open and will continue to expand as more centers open soon.
The contract is open ended, as long as the need for the centers remain.
