Governments have a unique responsibility for the safety and well-being of their communities. That’s where we come in. We partner with you to build community resilience.

Our effectiveness is built on deep experience across federal, state, local and international governments. We’ve reviewed and delivered response plans in states from Hawai’i to Vermont, and from California to the US Virgin Islands. We helped the US Department of Agriculture to refine and implement a preparedness program for animal disease. And we helped the City of San Jose review its preparedness and response in the wake of recent flooding.

We help you design and implement effective preparedness programs that make your communities safer.

Hawai’i implements multi-faceted preparedness program

Actions speak louder than words. It’s not enough to have a great plan. When disaster strikes, it’s all about how you respond.

It’s also about having a trusted partner who’s been through it before, who can help you master the situation and rebound. We respond to over 1,600 incidents every year. Our front-line experience includes Hurricanes Maria, Irma, Harvey, Sandy and Katrina; 9/11; Deepwater Horizon and avian flu outbreaks. Our resources run deep: we recently responded simultaneously to disasters in more than 20 widely dispersed locations.

We’re your force multiplier. We help you run a nimble emergency management function that can surge in time of need.

Local communities rebound from Hurricane Matthew

Once the disaster’s immediate impact is under control, the recovery phase determines whether your community remains damaged — or emerges even stronger than before.

No other firm rivals our experience. We’ve helped win and administer over $40 billion in Federal disaster recovery funds, representing more than 80,000 discrete projects. We’ve helped manage over 1,000 hazard mitigation projects valued at more than $3 billion. We’ve helped our clients justify, secure and administer over $12 billion in supplemental recovery funding – funds beyond FEMA’s public assistance and hazard mitigation programs – including monies from HUD’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

We help get your community back up and running, stronger than before, as quickly as possible. We know what it takes, because we’ve been there before.
