Frequently Asked Questions
Are you affiliated with the government?
No, FEMA Corporation is a manufacturer of Hydraulic Control Components and actuators created in 1968 to serve the Hydraulics industry. The Federal Emergency Management Agency was created in 1979 through an order by then President Jimmy Carter to serve the nation in disaster relief. If you are looking for the government agency, please see: www.fema.gov
Can I browse your catalog to find the product that works for me?
FEMA Corporation does not maintain a catalog. Products designed and manufactured at FEMA are done so for specific applications.
FEMA Corporation works closely with customer engineers to fully understand the needs of the system and modify existing designs to match. Or, FEMA will suggest a clean sheet design to give the customer and application what it truly needs.
A few general specification sheets are available on a select number of our products such as the On-Off Direct Drive valve. These can be found in the 'Products' and 'Literature' tabs of our web site.
Can I use a credit card for purchase?
FEMA offers a few select products for purchase with a credit card. See our link under Contact Sales or in the Product pages. Feel free to contact us to discuss other products or payment options.
Can you modify one of your valve designs to accommodate my system requirements?
Yes, we often base our new product developments on existing platforms for quicker time to market and lower cost. We are happy to discuss options with you and look forward to working with you to create exactly what you need.

Where do I send a FEMA Unit for Repair?
While there are many companies who claim to be able to repair FEMA valves, only FEMA has the equipment and expertise to correctly and completely repair a suspect unit.
FEMA Corporation will evaluate the unit upon return. The suspect unit is tested on the same equipment that was used to build the valve.
If a problem is discovered, FEMA will advise the repair needed and suggest a price for rework as well as current pricing for a brand new unit.
FEMA also provides expert system troubleshooting, if the unit is found to perform per specification. FEMA will work with your technician or engineering department to make sure that the unit selected is right for the system.
