Emergency Preparedness Planning


Super Storm Sandy, Hurricane Katrina, the Loma Preita Earthquake, 9/11, workplace and school violence, and other events have changed the way we live and work. TRC provides emergency management services including mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery to support government, private industry and educational institutions.


From risk assessment, hazard identification and quantification, through mitigation solution development and prioritization, to master planning and implementation, TRC’s emergency preparedness experts work closely with you to ensure that enterprise-wide policies and procedures are in place to safeguard your staff, business, facilities and customers.
