Mitigating Risk with Expert Preparedness
Maintaining a Constant State of Readiness
CTEH is the preeminent emergency/environmental response and industrial hygiene company in the US today. As such, we have comprehensively broken down our core services to three categories: Readiness, Recovery, and Response. Readiness is often a topic only thought about after disaster strikes, however, at CTEH, we work proactively to get businesses, organizations, and communities to think about preparedness as early as possible. We employ a staff of training, preparedness, and planning experts whose careers are dedicated to helping organizations and governments prepare for their worst days.
- CTEH participates in ~30 emergency response drills and exercises annually
- Response teams are on-call 24/7/365
- CTEH employs a full time pilot to respond to clients everywhere
- CTEH staff maintains readiness through annual training and professional development
Training and Exercises
Maintaining a constant state of readiness requires the testing of emergency response plans and procedures. Our consultants participate in approximately 30 regulatory required emergency response exercises annually throughout Canada and the United States with public and private entities. We also facilitate four to six exercises annually to test components of existing plans and review whether the operating organization can effectively interact with stakeholders, agencies, and contractors. This helps to demonstrate that they can perform a coordinated response for any scenario. Our experienced professionals are trained and experienced in the FEMA National Incident Management System (NIMS) and have served in previous roles from initial responder to key positions within the Incident Management Team (IMT).
