IEM is on a mission to build a safe, secure, and resilient world. As the largest woman- and minority-owned professional services firm of its kind, we are focused on emergency management, disaster recovery, homeland security, public health, and digital services. We integrate science, technology, and real-world experience to provide our customers with solutions that work and outcomes that matter.

IEM was founded nearly four decades ago with the intent of providing results that save lives by applying the latest scientific knowledge and best practices for evidence-based decision-making to protect people and communities and help them become more resilient and better prepared for the next crisis.

Each day we strive to demonstrate our commitment to Puerto Rico’s recovery efforts and resiliency building through our work and our actions.

Our experts have helped state, local, tribal, and territorial governments and private sector clients respond to the most catastrophic disasters in our nation’s history, including September 11th, Hurricanes Katrina, Sandy, Harvey, María, Irma, and Sandy, and India’s 2010 earthquakes and Texas wildfires. We have managed billions of dollars in federal disaster funds, helped thousands of families rebuild their homes, and strengthened critical infrastructure to better protect against future disasters while remaining effective stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Beyond disasters, we also help agencies and organizations adapt to the emerging challenges of the 21st century –from cybersecurity threats to chemical weapons disposal. We provide smarter, more efficient technology solutions to homeland security planners, emergency managers, and public officials.
