In today's world, public and private organizations are faced with new challenges to secure and protect their people, physical plant, data, information technology, and customers. Recent events have made us recognize our vulnerability and require us to focus on preparation for unforeseen emergencies.
An emergency is a natural, man-made or technological event that significantly disrupts our environment (e.g. severe storm, bomb threat, loss of utilities, child abduction or bioterrorist attack).
Emergency management is defined as "the discipline and profession of applying science, technology, planning and management to deal with extreme events that can injure or kill large numbers of people, do great damage to property, and disrupt community life." The emergency management process is comprised of four components, each critical to ensuring the success of emergency response. The component activities are mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
StoneGate Associates has worked with numerous hospital/medical centers, financial institutions, school systems (K-12), colleges and universities and other organizations to ensure that they are prepared to deal with emergencies. Additionally, we have worked with both County and Local Office of Emergency Management officials and FEMA representatives to help secure significant funds as part of our client's recovery efforts. From performing vulnerability assessments and developing emergency management plans, to training staff and conducting emergency drills, StoneGate Associates has helped to make emergency preparedness a part of our clients' normal business practices. With the uncertainties that exist in our ever-changing environment, businesses need to ensure emergency management is an integral part of their daily operation.
