About Sean

  • Sean Scott is a second-generation restoration contractor by trade who has spent over 38 years in the construction and disaster restoration industry.  Most of this experience has involved assisting literally thousands of individuals and families rebuild their homes and businesses after fires, floods, and other disaster events.
  • In 2003 and again in 2007, wildfires swept through Southern California destroying nearly 6,000 homes and damaging countless others.  It was in the weeks and months following these events that many survivors found themselves unable to rebuild or return home. These events compelled Sean to embark on a mission to utilize his expertise and experience and create a recovery road-map to walk disaster survivors step-by-step through the recovery process.
  • Since 2009, Sean’s book The Red Guide to Recovery – Resource Handbook for Disaster Survivors, has been adopted by emergency management agencies, fire departments, Native American Tribes, relief organizations, and businesses across the U.S.
  • It is now Sean’s desire to share valuable insight on not only how to recover from disaster events, but also how to prepare for recovery by illustrating vital tools people need to rebuild their homes and lives.
