EPICENTER DEPLOYMENT SUPPORT UNIT

Epicenter Deployment Support Unit (EDSU) is a flexible and diverse team of emergency managers that respond in-person or virtually to enhance, manage, and support emergency management and technology capabilities during times of crisis, emerging incidents, or planned events. For virtual deployments, we can respond within minutes while for most in-person deployments, we can be on-site within hours after a contract is signed. Our $0 Standby Contract provides the next level of readiness for your organization. When the $0 Standby Contract is signed in advance, the Epicenter Innovation team can respond to support your mission fast.

Our trusted technologists and incident management and emergency management experts augment the capabilities of existing incident structures, providing support, when needed, where needed as a whole team or a single resource. EDSU is available for deployments 24/7/365.

“Working with Epicenter Innovation has been an amazing experience. They were able to take our initial vision and turn it into a project we never could have imagined on our own. Their team is both friendly and professional and I highly recommend anyone operating in the resilience space to consider working with them.”

“Epicenter Innovation worked for over a year with the Utica College Campus Emergency Management Team to help us mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from a wide range of hazards. In the early days, our team’s capabilities were rudimentary, our training was uneven, and few of our processes were documented in the formal sense. Epicenter Innovation was indispensable in strengthening our working knowledge of concepts like the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS), assessing risks to raise awareness of the hazards our institution faces, and increasing our confidence when responding to crises of any size or scope.”

“The work of emergency management, and especially disaster communication, has been rapidly evolving. The way that Epicenter Innovation connects traditional marketing, risk communication, and disaster principles is a significant step forward in creating stronger relationships and building trust with the public. Even more valuable is the opportunities they provide to connect, discuss, and learn with other practitioners who truly care about building a stronger, more resilient nation.”
