I would like to thank all of you for your inputs. It has been an informative conversation with mostly private emails.
Update about IBTS: They contacted me a little over a month ago and said that with my inspection and prior hurricane recovery experience that I was on the list and that they'd send an info packet. Never received it.
I called them (several times) and was told things are still up in the air and that they were waiting for FEMA to let them know how many inspectors they needed. Again was told I would receive an info packet and/or an email. Never received ether.
I had turned down several jobs as I had expected that with the 24 hour notification that I could'nt do that to my clients and so I wouldn't take jobs that I knew would last more than 3 day's (I also do repairs and maintenance, NOT on my own inspections).
I guess that the bottom line is that if you are told you have been excepted, that you should continue doing what you do and schedule your future work until you know for a fact that what they tell you is the truth and that you will be going (or a VERY, VERY strong chance of it).
Best regards to all and thanks again for the replies and info.
