Capabilities

WAC provides technical expertise with proven program management credentials. We offer not just the ability to support, evaluate, or build efficient organizations and processes, but the subject matter expertise to make them effective in changing outcomes and understanding the bandwidth and availability of stakeholders varies. We believe in holistic preparedness, integrating mission areas and functional tasks across a jurisdiction or region to show the entirety of its requirements and to build trust and relationship between the entities playing a role in its success. We’ve grouped our service areas into Comprehensive Preparedness, Disaster Response and Recovery Operations, and Management Consulting.

Comprehensive Preparedness

WAC believes that preparedness is a part of all five missions areas: prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery. Each of these has a blue-sky component to ensuring that plans, organization, equipment, training, and exercise occur to test and validate the capabilities within an organization or jurisdiction. The accompanying programmatic elements of identifying funding, tracking progress and reporting, and creating value and interoperability are all important to success as well. Our preparedness approach also is grounded in realistic, defensible consequence data that leads stakeholders back to a quantitative and measurable basis, ensuring that the outputs are truly and realistically linked to the identified outcomes.
