Through the work completed by EPS, Vermont has been able to gain a clear picture of the training needs across the State, allowing us to develop a new training program to meet identitied areas for improvement. EPS' staff was efficient and catered to the evolving project, changing direction mid-stream as parameters dictated.

We contracted Emergency Preparedness Solutions to conduct a series of disaster preparedness trainings for the directors of agencies we fund. EPS designed a curriculum from scratch and delivered a series of trainings that were perfectly tailored to their needs. The participants left the trainings with a vastly improved understanding of disaster preparedness and how to apply that knowledge to better prepare their staff and volunteers for a disaster. I would happily contract EPS for another project in the future.
