Disaster and Emergency Management

Disaster and Emergency Management


DETech staff come from the emergency management world to bring you proven ideas and methodologies. Our approach is grounded in experience at the local through the Federal levels – from day-to-day operations to disaster and emergency response.


DETech’s diverse team means we have the staff to solve your wide variety of challenges – from hazardous materials to crisis communications. We can design a system that works for a new emergency management agency or refine and update the processes already in place.


Excercise Design, Delivery, & Evaluation


DETech exercises test plans and procedures in a controlled learning environment with realistic pressures for decision making and response. From tabletop to full-scale exercises, from the municipal to the federal level, our staff can adapt to your needs saving you time and money.


Well-versed in the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP), our exercise development, facilitation and evaluation staff, which includes FEMA certified Master Exercise Practitioners, has successfully participated in exercises from the municipal and county levels, through the state and federal levels.


Past and present projects include management and support to the eight sites of the Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program, National Level Exercise - 2, 2008 (Umatilla Vignette to the Pacific Northwest Venue), the Homeland Security Regional Exercise Support Program, and the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials.
