Aviation & Transportation Disaster Cleanup Services

Whether it involves a wide-body jetliner, a commuter train, or a water taxi, a transportation disaster is a complex, emotionally charged event in which the operating carrier’s margin for error is very small. Blackmon Mooring & BMS CAT provides aviation and transportation clients worldwide with planning, response, and recovery services based on best practices and decades of first-hand experience.

We believe that success in this demanding field requires partnerships grounded in trust, integrity, and transparency. To that end, Blackmon Mooring & BMS CAT works with each client to understand their specific needs, identify or create the right solutions, and integrate the results into their emergency plans.

Blackmon Mooring & BMS CAT does not charge a retainer and our response agreement is non-binding and non-exclusive. In addition, assistance with planning and training is provided at no charge.

We also build productive relationships by regularly participating in training, conferences, and exercises involving clients, government agencies, non-government organizations, and other stakeholders. And if the worst happens, we work side-by-side with our customer until the job is done, focusing on doing the right and compassionate thing for those involved in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
