Emergency Management Services

When preparing for the worst, partner with the best

GP Strategies has decades of experience providing strategic project management and emergency planning, training, exercise-support, and staff augmentation solutions to organizations and public health institutions across the country. We are emergency disaster management experts equipped to help prepare local, state, federal and partner organizations with any event: health pandemic, natural disasters, and terrorism.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, GP Strategies can help you navigate FEMA’s public assistance program to expedite disaster assistance funding. Our virtual recovery office can also help simplify the reimbursement processes to help you quickly get the funding you need.

Our emergency management teams have supported municipalities and organizations throughout a number of pandemic outbreaks and events, such as H1N1 and other influenza strains. In addition, we helped with response and recovery services resulting from hurricanes Katrina, Sandy, Harvey, Irma, Irene, Gustav, Rita, Ike, Dolly, Claudette, Matthew, Maria, and more.

Preparation is key so you’re able to respond effectively. GP Strategies can help. Our services include:
