Integration of Key Stakeholder Goals and Objectives
When preparing for emergencies, Cubic recognizes the need to have a coordinated, systematic "Whole of Community" approach. We integrate the goals and objectives of key stakeholders, including government agencies, first responders, and industry operators, to accomplish planning and preparedness for all types of threats and hazards including chemical, biological, and radiological incidents. We utilize subject matter expertise and standardized planning methodologies for organizations, communities, regions, states/provinces, the federal government, and nations around the world. As a baseline we consider each of the five phases of emergency management; however, depending on our client's or end-user's objectives, we can tailor our approach. These five phases include:
- Prevention: Prevention addresses ongoing activities to reduce the risk of health, life, property, and the environment from hazards. This is a long-term approach to looking at the fundamentals of disaster planning - our goal is to identify and minimize risks.
- Preparedness: Preparedness is implemented in anticipation of a disaster. It creates a state-of-readiness level to ensure that required resources are available to effectively respond to and mitigate the consequences of a disaster or incident.
- Mitigation: Mitigation is also implemented both in anticipation of a disaster and after one occurs. The goal is to prevent future emergencies or minimize their effects.
- Response: This phase prepares for an organized response to a disaster or incident. This may include local, state, federal, and military agencies as well as private-sector resources.
- Recovery: Recovery plans for the final task of rebuilding after a disaster or incident. Recovery continues until all socio-economic and environmental systems return to normal or near normal conditions.
