Who Are We?

Exploring the Philosophy of Emergency Management
At Foundation for the Research and Advancement of Emergency Management, we believe that the best solutions come from the people who are most affected by the problem. We have dedicated our lives to working with these communities — providing whatever support they need in order to unlock their potential. We want all individuals to envision their goals and realize they have the ability to make their dreams a reality.
Preparing for infrastructure compromise
Many of us grew up during the Cold War. We spent a lot of time worrying about what we would do if our respective politicians lost their minds and pressed the nuclear button, sending us all diving under our desks or into bomb shelters. We’ve continued to worry about the nuclear abilities of other nations, particularly North Korea, but by and large, preparing local communities for war went away with the switch from Civil Defense to Emergency Management. Now we crawl under our desks for earthquakes (which might actually protect us) and head for tornado shelters instead of fall-out shelters.
