Disaster Housing Inspectors
The Partnership for Response and Recovery (PaRR Inspections) is a contractor to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). We are seeking men and women to work as independent contractors in the performance of damage assessments to homes following federally-declared disasters. Requirements include basic knowledge of residential construction, familiarity with Windows software, flexibility to work intermittently (as needed), willingness to travel to disaster areas, no felony convictions, and ability to maintain the highest standards of professionalism under potentially stressful conditions. This work is personally satisfying and financially rewarding for the right person. The work is ideal for home inspectors who can ?break away? for a few weeks now and then throughout the year. The inspector?s role is to meet with disaster victims at their homes and record disaster-related real property and personal property damages into a hand-held computer. Based on the inspector?s assessment, the disaster-victim may be eligible to receive federal assistance. Free Certification classes held across the nation year-round. Successful completion of the 8-hour class earns 4 continuing education hours from NACHI. To learn more or to register for a class near you, go to www.parrinspections.com.
