Preparedness: We work with government agencies and communities to make preparations and develop plans of action to successfully manage and execute response and recovery activities.
Response: We quickly mobilize resources to respond during and immediately following an event. We put emergency plans and training into action to save lives and prevent further property damage from hazardous conditions.
Recovery: We repair and restore impacted communities by helping to expedite a return to normal daily life. We’re typically on the ground performing these missions within 24 hours of an event and continue to support the recovery and rebuilding process for months, or even years, afterwards.
