In this episode of “Givers of GovCon,” we chat with Jeremy Fremin, CEO of Praescient Analytics, who is involved with clean up, repair and recovery activities in Southwest Florida following Hurricane Ian. Ian made landfall Sept. 28 with 150 mph sustained winds as a strong Category 4 hurricane, and caused major flooding, damage, destruction and unfortunately, even loss of life. Fremin sits on the community board for a barrier island in SW Florida, where he is closely and personally connected.
He shares with us first-hand accounts of the damages in the area, the challenges barrier islands faced right after the hurricane and stories of the local community coming together in the wake of destruction. Fremin also talks about how he helped from afar when he couldn’t yet access North Captiva Island, and how others around the country can do the same.
