The Private Sector makes the things and services we use. Businesses are vulnerable to the emergencies that strike any community from the physical damage of floods, earthquakes, explosions, violence, and chemical releases to the impacts of infectious disease. At GVC we have conducted hazmat training in high tech facilities with exercises in clean rooms, assisted the biotech industry keep themselves and their communities safe, provided Continuity Planning training, and the GVC President was in charge of the Refinery Safety program at the California Environmental Protection Agency. Often, when GVC is contracted for planning, training, and exercising for a governmental entity, we engage local industry to break down those institutional barriers that exist. For emergency management challenges great and small in the private sector, GVC can provide no nonsense substantive support.
