WHAT WE DO
IEM’s emergency management and medical experts offer unparalleled experience responding to COVID-19 and other disasters. IEM’s highly experienced professional employees bring extensive experience in the planning, logistical operations, management, implementation, administration, and delivery of the vaccine programs and authorities. IEM uses risk-based, data-driven services to help decision-makers achieve results that work in the real world.

IEM is at the forefront of emergency management and disaster scenario planning, and our staff has analyzed, written, reviewed, and integrated planning guidance to develop and operationalize emergency plans at all levels—federal, state, county, and community.

An efficient and well-coordinated logistics system is an active and ongoing process.
