scenario-based resource planning

Planning is at the core of meeting IEM’s mission to build a safe, secure, and resilient world and keeps our customers on the forefront of being ready for all hazards.

Experience shows that natural and man-made disasters rarely fit neatly into “a specific plan.” That is why we deliver planning services that are realistic, easily reproduced, and flexible enough to help decision makers deal with the complex, real-world needs that must be addressed when disaster strikes. IEM’s innovative planning approach is being used by jurisdictions and agencies around the country, employing scenario-based resource planning and fictional – but plausible – disaster scenarios to establish a common framework for the identification and evaluation of your capabilities.
