Aside from a brief mention at the end of some posts, I don’t often promote our company on this blog. While the intent of the blog has never been to directly promote our services, we have gained and maintained a number of professional relationships through it, including those with clients. I do want to take advantage of the platform on this occasion to express gratitude and hope that you will join us in celebrating an important benchmark.
Emergency Preparedness Solutions (EPS) is excited to be celebrating five years of helping clients to enhance capabilities and improve performance in the areas of emergency management and homeland security. We have worked with clients across the nation on assessments, planning, training, and exercises on a variety of unique projects. More specifically, over the past five years we have taken on projects such as exercise design, conduct, and evaluation – including staff support to a state-wide Vigilant Guard exercise, and conduct of airport exercises around the nation. We have developed, conducted, and evaluated training programs – including those on functional needs sheltering, hazardous materials response for EMS, and continuity of operations. We have also conducted state-wide training needs assessments, plan evaluations, and have created multi-hazard plans.
To help mark our five years, we are proud to release a new logo for EPS and an updated website. The URL is still the same, but the look is totally different. Please visit us at WWW.EPSLLC.BIZ and take a look around. Our look is sharper, more contemporary, and mobile friendly. We also have pictures from a variety of our projects featured throughout the site as well as a live feed of this blog. Many thanks to Mohawk Valley GIS for their work on the website. MVGIS is a small business local to us that provides outstanding Geographic Information Systems services and other work locally and afar. Please be sure to check them out.
On our new website we are also happy to announce our support of Team Rubicon. Team Rubicon is an outstanding organization that provides hands-on disaster relief services to communities struck by disaster across the nation and around the globe. Team Rubicon accomplishes great things through the people that make up their organization, mostly military veterans. You can show them support by direct financial contributions as well as purchasing items through their online store.
We certainly want to acknowledge the contributions of the people who have and continue to work for us on projects. We often leverage talented people from around the country based on the skills required to meet the needs of clients. These include active and retired public safety professionals and military veterans.
Like most small businesses, the support of friends and family, especially in the early years, are extremely important. There are far too many to name, and I’d be likely to forget someone, but each of you have been so important to our success!
Lastly, we wouldn’t be in business if not for our clients. There are a number of testimonials on our website from several of our clients and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with each of them. We continue to take on new clients as well as engaging in new contracts with previous clients. We look forward to continuing on with current clients and working with new ones far into the future!
Thanks for your continued support of this blog and of EPS!
