Our Expertise

Emergency management requires a diverse set of skills and expertise to effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies and disasters
Hazard Mitigation

Hazard mitigation is the only phase of emergency management specifically dedicated to breaking the cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. Community mitigation projects range from voluntary flood buyouts to building community tornado safe rooms; replacing county- and community-owned culverts and low water crossings; stabilizing stream banks; and burying public electric utilities.


Preparedness is making plans and having the needed equipment and supplies to save lives during and after a disaster event. It’s also knowing what the warning signs are for a pending emergency or disaster. Preparedness includes all actions that are taken before the crisis occurs.


Emergency management is the pulling together and organization of resources for dealing with emergencies, disasters, and hazards dealing with human life, properties, and the environment.


Emergency management plays a critical role in helping communities recover from disasters and emergencies. After a disaster, emergency management professionals work to assess the damage and coordinate with various stakeholders to provide immediate assistance and support to affected individuals and communities. This includes providing essential services such as food, shelter, and medical care, and coordinating with government agencies to ensure that affected communities have access to disaster relief funds and resources. Additionally, emergency management professionals work with community organizations and volunteers to help affected individuals and families rebuild their homes, businesses, and communities. Through these efforts, emergency management helps communities recover from disasters and build resilience for future emergencies.


Drones have become an increasingly important tool for emergency management professionals to assist in disaster response and recovery efforts. Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), can provide a bird's-eye view of disaster areas, which is essential for situational awareness and damage assessment. They can be equipped with high-resolution cameras, thermal imaging sensors, and other sensors to collect real-time data and imagery that can aid in search and rescue operations, damage assessment, and planning for recovery efforts.
