Dear FEMA Inspectors,
For many years I have fought for the rights of every subcontracted FEMA housing inspector. Emanating from the class action lawsuit I'd filed in 2007 against the prime contractors for FEMA's housing inspection services, Dewberry Davis and Parsons Brinkerhoff, all inspectors are now enjoying the fruits of my tireless efforts. No longer do you have to stay in cheap hotels, pay for your daily expenses and for rental cars. But there's still work to do.
PAFI is on the cusp of a new era. Together with my new book that has just been released to market, our membership ranks are increasing and PAFI's objectives are closer to fruition. Regardless of whether FEMA creates a cadre of housing inspectors from PAFI's members, or should they choose to continue their association with prime contractors PB and/or Vanguard, in numbers there is strength. Let's be strong. By joining PAFI, no longer will you be relegated to accepting the current failures within this existing and unfair system. We will be the liaison between FEMA and PB and Vanguard. We will, at last, have a voice.
The aforementioned book provides the reader with information never revealed to the general public. As well, it will enlighten every subcontracted FEMA housing inspector as to how the disaster-relief system actually works, and reveals, among other things, the intricacies of the contractual relationship between FEMA and PB + Vanguard. The book is listed with major retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon. It's a must read for every inspector. I hope you enjoy it.
The transition from an Association to a nationally recognized Union is PFI's goal. We are here to inform you, guide you, and protect your interests. The current pay-scale for inspectors is grossly inadequate, is far-below industry standards, and must be raised to $75 per inspection. Most of you are aware that PB currently offers health insurance, overtime wages, and a debit card to cover inspectors' expenses, but Vanguard does not offer any of those to its inspectors. This must be addressed. These are but a few issues that are on PAFI's agenda. We invite suggestions. Please feel free to do so. Should you have any questions, don't hesitate to email or call me. As previously said, there is still much work to do.
PAFI's annual membership fee is $125. When transitioning to a certified Union, we project that those annual fees will be under $200. Membership seniority is relative to the date when joining PAFI. A board of directors is envisioned, and we will be seeking qualified individuals to fill certain posts, both regionally and nationally. For now, should you be interested in a position with PAFI, please contact us. When warranted, new updates will be posted on this site. Stay tuned.
Nothing stays the same. Change is the only constant in life. And now is the time for poignant changes. PAFI values your membership, and we hope you value PAFI. As always, PAFI members' identities are never revealed.

Please FEMA Director Long and our beloved President Donald Trump help the contractors vette the new FEMA Inspectors for a bit better. What has happened with this man beign robbed and murdered should not have happened by one of our won FEMA Inspectors . We can do better.
MOBILE, Ala. (WFLA/WKRG) – A FEMA hurricane worker is sitting in an Alabama jail, accused of murdering one Polk County man and seriously hurting another.
The three men charged in connection with the murder of William Reiss appeared before a judge on Thursday and two refused to sign extradition papers.
Gerjuan Jackson, who initially knew Reiss as a FEMA contractor, appeared in court Thursday on separate charges he faces in Alabama.
The local district attorney’s office did not have papers from Polk County regarding the charges.
Kenley Campbell and Darril Rankin Jr. will not come to Florida voluntarily, meaning the state will need to ask for a governor’s warrant to forcibly make them come back to face charges.
Last Wednesday, Reiss was gunned down inside his Polk City home. He had been shot four times in the head and once in the hand. Reiss’ friend Kenneth Maier was also shot and left for dead.
According to an arrest report, Jackson is an official FEMA contractor who met the victim last year while conducting a damage assessment weeks after Hurricane Irma hit Polk County.
During this time, Jackson learned Reiss had a large collection of guns and would sell firearms frequently. Two weeks after they met, Jackson purchased two handguns from Reiss’ collection worth an estimated $800.
Shortly after the sale, Jackson was arrested in Alabama for improper possession of those firearms. Investigators say months later, he spoke with Rankin and Campbell and suggested they go “hit a lick” on Reiss.
Jackson will be back in court on Tuesday. http://wfla.com/2018/01/10/sheriff-to-announce-major-break-in-polk-city-murder-case/
FEMA is culpable in this and so it the Contractors they need to be sued. Donald Trump and Director Long, please clean up the FEMA Swamp. I sent you both my book, and I know Director Long had learned things from it. That is why he started the whistleblower program. Well, I am blowing the whistle here. https://www.amazon.com/DP/1546788336Type your paragraph here.
