Emergency Preparedness

Creating resilience

The disruptive nature of disasters is well-documented across all levels of local government service delivery. At Perteet, we provide our clients with a wide range of preparedness services that are intended to create resilience against the physical and financial impacts of disasters and emergencies. Our team has worked on over 50 unique preparedness projects with over 20 local governments in the past five years. Clients appreciate the value of lessons learned in our experience as first responders to a variety of disasters, including earthquakes, floods, windstorms, and wildfires. Response, recovery, and mitigation planning is our specialty and we apply the variety of skills learned as real-world practitioners to all the work we do.


The Emergency Management/Preparedness Services team is highly skilled, highly knowledgeable, and would be an asset to anyone wanting to enhance their tools and plans in this arena.
