Emergency Preparedness & Planning
Disasters can strike at any time and without warning, which is why being prepared is crucial. At AG Witt, LLC., we recognize this, and that’s why we offer our clients comprehensive emergency preparedness and planning services. We work closely with you to develop top-notch disaster response plans, examine potential hazards and risks, and assess your organization’s vulnerabilities. By taking a proactive approach, we help you minimize the impact of disasters while ensuring that your operations continue smoothly. Get in touch with us to learn more about how we can help.
Disaster Recovery Technical Services
AG Witt provides FEMA Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation technical services to compliment your staff and enhance your recovery capabilities. You can depend on AG Witt to assist with:
50% Rule Calculations
Benefit Cost Analysis
428 Project Development
Mitigation Project Identification
Sometimes, when disaster strikes, you may be unprepared or unable to quickly staff-up to the levels required to meet demands. Our professional staff are trained in FEMA recovery program regulations, policies, and procedures. They are experienced in navigating the Public Assistance Grants Portal and in communicating effectively at the state and federal levels.
We stand ready to provide qualified supplemental staff for all required pre-declaration, training, recovery operations, and closeout activities.
Closeout & Audit
The last step in the disaster grant process is often the most difficult. Files are incomplete, documentation sometimes cannot be located, and very often attention is diverted to more urgent priorities and critical needs.
The AG Witt team of professional closeout staff know what it’s like and have the background and experience to step in and help states achieve their grant closeout responsibilities. Our team members have closed-out more than $15 billion in FEMA project worksheets.
We can do the same for you.
We believe the best After-Action Reporting is done in real-time, while an event is unfolding, and while there is an opportunity to gather information before it might be lost to memory.
By starting the process in the midst of a crisis, we help our clients conduct objective evaluations of their operations, capabilities, and performance, by identifying areas that may be in need of enhancement or improvement.
Our formula for success is simple. We create an environment for open, collaborative and non-judgmental dialogue, listen carefully to the voices of all key stakeholders, and apply lessons we have learned from doing this in the aftermath of many crises.
Long-Term Recovery Planning
James Lee Witt led groundbreaking long-term recovery efforts and was the first to help establish a state long-term recovery office when he recommended the formation of the Louisiana Recovery Office following Hurricane Katrina.
He improved upon it in the establishment of similar state-led recoveries in Iowa after the Midwest floods, Vermont following Tropical Storm Irene, and New Jersey in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
AG Witt remains a leader in long-term recovery planning, and provides professional planners, former FEMA FCOs and former state emergency management directors to assist in these efforts.
