Our full-service offerings enhance emergency management programs at the local, state, and federal levels. Our responsive, flexible, and tailored approaches are goal-oriented, cost-effective, and efficient.
Working hand-in-hand with our clients, we engage stakeholders and foster a collaborative atmosphere among all planning partners to achieve widespread buy-in and support of the final product - enhancing organizational relationships and resulting in a plan that can be executed when necessary.
Our training courses teach clients better ways to absorb and process new information, and keep them interested with lessons meaningful to their specific challenges. Our training professionals bring subject matter expertise in engineering, emergency management, homeland security, infrastructure protection, benefit-cost analysis, and mitigation planning.
Real-time emergencies are not the time to establish relationships with other agencies. Our realistic learning environments help participants build relationships and enhance skill sets, all while conducting exercises in a no-fault learning environment that helps familiarize personnel with roles and responsibilities; assess capabilities; validate plans, policies, and procedures; and identify areas for improvement.
Contingency and Continuity of Operations Planning
Our certified Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) managers help clients prepare for conditions that could prevent normal workplace operations. We apply policies, best practices, and appropriate techniques from government agencies and the private sector to develop viable alternatives for the continuation of essential operations. Every situation is unique, and so is every plan we develop.
In accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, funding eligibility for FEMA's Pre-Disaster Mitigation and Hazard Mitigation Grant program is contingent upon having a FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan. We provide our clients with a superior team capable of developing an approvable hazard mitigation plan. We also assist with steering committees, public input, hazard profiles, detailed risk assessments and vulnerability analyses, applicable mitigation strategies, benefit-cost analyses, and support through the FEMA approval and adoption processes.
As one of FEMA's primary contractors for more than 30 years, our experience gives us unique insight into how national disaster events are prepared for, managed, and applied to communities. We help clients become more resilient through efficient and cost-effective mitigation measures that will reduce the impact of future disaster events.
Experienced Disaster Response Partner
Our disaster cadre - a team of more than 700 skilled professionals dedicated to disaster response and recovery work - responds to client surge capacity needs. We deliver the right people with the experience relevant to each task assignment.
When it's necessary to assess infrastructure damage, we work closely with facility owners, funding agencies, and insurance companies to establish scope of work and cost for repair and construction. We specialize in the ability to manage large-scale, complex, and time-sensitive field deployments for infrastructure assessments.
Debris left in the wake of natural or human-caused hazards pose a huge obstacle to an affected area's recovery. We help communities create custom All-Hazards Debris Management Plans before an event takes place.
