Meet IEM

IEM is an emergency management and disaster recovery firm dedicated to building a safe, secure, and resilient world. A woman- and minority-owned company, IEM provides services and expertise at every stage of the emergency management cycle—from preparedness and prevention/protection to mitigation, response, and recovery. We integrate science, technology, and real-world experience to provide our customers with solutions that work and outcomes that matter.

IEM was founded over 35 years ago with the idea of applying the latest scientific knowledge and best practices to decision-making about how to best protect people and communities.

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 Hurricanes Katrina, Maria, Irma, Sandy, and Matthew. We’ve managed billions of dollars in federal disaster funds, helped thousands of families rebuild their homes, and strengthened public infrastructure to protect our nation against future disasters.

Beyond disasters we also help institutions adapt to the emerging challenges of the 21st century – everything from cybersecurity threats to chemical weapons disposal. We provide smarter, more efficient IT and defense solutions to homeland security planners, and soldiers on the battlefield.

IEM was founded as IEM International, Inc. in 1985 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. IEM is the largest minority, woman-owned global emergency management and homeland security firm in the world.  We are now headquartered in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina, with offices in Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, Texas, and Washington, D.C. as well as two offices in Puerto Rico – San Juan and Aguadilla.
