Risk, Response, and Recovery

Making Communities Stronger

Empowering Prepared, Resilient, and Risk-Informed Communities

As a leader in the field of emergency management and resilience, we’ve been supporting communities for more than 40 years to advance risk reduction and design thriving spaces that are adaptable to the changing climate.

Dedicated to Community Preparedness and Resilience

Building resilience involves forward-looking assessment, preparedness, planning, and implementation, as well as the ability to evolve and adapt as vulnerabilities shift and stresses hit. We help communities build a culture of preparedness, identify and assess risks, analyze and visualize data, create adaptation strategies, and implement long-term measures that optimize fiscal opportunities.

An Integrated Response and Recovery Team

Our integrated, multidisciplinary team connects our emergency management and mitigation-focused resilience experts with our cadre of on-call disaster response and recovery specialists. For each task, we deliver the right people and experience, drawing on best practices that incorporate the most recent guidance, policy, and ground conditions into our boots-on-the-ground services and action plans.
