Program Assessments and Gap Analysis

Our team of strategic emergency management advisors and consultants excel at identifying potential issues, challenges, and opportunities through program assessments and gap analyses. These reports serve as a tool to enhance the overall preparedness of the communities and organizations we support. At Tidal Basin, we understand that preparing for the unexpected takes time and a complete understanding of areas fit for improvement within the operations of a community’s emergency management plans. Our goal is to support and provide assistance where applicable to ensure proper preparedness once disasters strike. We suggest ways to minimize potential gaps, and offer training and support when required.

You delivered what you promised, and we are confident in your ability and the ability of your firm to provide these services fully on a technical and professional level yet be able to translate clearly and concisely the intricate and sometimes subjective FEMA regulations which we could not have done without you.

The State of Alaska…[has] a significant investment in the disaster recovery process for both state and federally declared events…. The collaboration with Tidal Basin in these efforts has been so successful and seamless that in most instances applicants and FEMA staff don’t even realize we have contractors on board unless we tell them. Our interaction with Tidal Basin staff and managers works and feels like true teammates and the result is a faster, more comprehensive delivery of disaster recovery resources to survivors.
