HGA disaster preparedness services support communities and governments with pre-disaster planning to the training and exercise assessments to help identify strategies and applications so that the best practices are implemented before a disaster occurs.
HGA provides clients with a variety of planning services to ensure disaster programs meet federal guidelines for funding. Specifically, we have assisted clients with hazard mitigation plans, CDBG-DR program implementation plans, and catastrophic all-hazard disaster preparedness plans. We understand the importance of stakeholder involvement in the planning process and have trained facilitators in place to collect and vet feedback to promote collective buy-in.
Training & Exercises
HGA provides high-quality response exercises and training seminars to emergency management, fire, law, medical, and public works personnel to help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from all threats and hazards. Our exercises follow HSEEP guidelines but are customized to test specific plans and capabilities requested by the customer. Our facilitators have the boots-on-the-ground experience necessary to design real-world scenarios for exercises and to provide substantive evaluation feedback. We can provide the full spectrum of technical assistance with exercise design and development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning. We can then develop training opportunities to improve shortcomings in capabilities identified during the exercise.
