Our experts offer decades of emergency planning expertise

Developing an all-hazards approach for our clients


When the next hurricane, wildfire, or tornado hits, will you be ready to respond? Ice storm, power outage, or shooting? Have you adapted your plans for COVID-19?

Our preparedness team brings decades of expertise in emergency planning, supported by deep knowledge of program assessment, training and exercise, and project management.

As part of a full-service emergency management firm, we have ready access to experts in all aspects of response, recovery, mitigation, and preparedness.

What Readiness Requires

Emergency preparedness turns on simple questions: When things go wrong, does your organization know who is responsible for what, what resources are needed, and how you will communicate? But achieving and documenting that level of readiness is not easy. It requires actual operational experience, subject-matter expertise, facilitation skills, skilled writing and editing, understanding of current best practice, robust project management, and problem-solving skills. That’s what we bring.

Our planning is always tailored to the specifics of your community. We help you determine how decision-making should function, frame how operations should be coordinated and communicated, and ensure all the details reflect who you are as an organization.
