The Primary mission of Emergency Solutions International (ESI) is to support partners from both the government and private sectors in their “All Hazard” emergency planning, preparedness and risk assessment needs. As part of a comprehensive approach to emergency planning, ESI encourages the use of the Capability Based Planning (CBP) methodology. The foundation for implementing CBP is the creation of Target Capabilities, which support a process of accountability through the use of defined measures and metrics.
With expertise in Incident Command System (ICS) in the response and recovery phase of an incident, ESI can provide “resourced” experts to assist in times of crisis. Further, to promote self-sufficiency, ESI can proactively train an organization’s own “boots on the ground” personnel responsible for crisis management whether they be in the field or the boardroom. To support a truly sustainable effort, regular exercising and evaluation of Emergency Response Plans through table top exercises may also be conducted with ESI.
The specialty of Emergency Solutions International is putting together “All Hazard” teams of experts for the purpose of resolving the prevention, preparedness, response and recovery issues that today’s organizations are trying to overcome. With 26 years experience as a firefighter, Command Officer and Emergency Planner, Mark Gillan, who serves as director of ESI, has the expertise and contacts to lead the effort and ensure successful project or planning outcomes.
ESI was incorporated in 2009 and currently works internationally.
