Immediate actions to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs are critical from the onset of a disaster. One of the challenges to effective response and recovery is the relatively high turnover and short tenure among officials responsible for response and recovery at all levels. Effective response and recovery hinges upon well-trained leaders and responders who have invested in response and recovery preparedness, developed engaged partnerships, and are able to achieve shared objectives. The players’ bench is constantly changing, but a concise, common playbook is needed by all.
All services conform to the National Response Framework (NRF), National Incident Management System (NIMS), and the National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) as require by the Department of Homeland Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directives 5 & 8.
We use and encourage scalable, flexible, and adaptable coordinating associations to align key roles and responsibilities your needs, linking all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector.
In the event that a disaster escalates to a proportion where your agency or organization requires addition incident management or Emergency Operations Center (EOC) support services, Early Alert can provide our elite Incident Management Support Team (IMST) to support and augment your incident management staffing.
