Obsidian Solutions Group provides full-service consulting services for emergency management, disaster preparedness, hazardous incident training and curricula development.

In the private sector most organizations do not have a plan in place leveraging what they know to proactively mitigate risk and manage a crisis whether it be natural or a man-made event. Obsidian Solutions Group recognizes government and industry reporting; noting that organizations without a Continuity Plan have a much-reduced survival rate after a major event. OSG will sort through available information, specifically review how it may or may not impact the organization’s Continuity Preparedness and assist with Continuity Plan Development. The organization in search of protecting itself from these hazards develops an edge over competitors who lack the foresight to plan for these inevitable risks, minimizing the loss of life and property.

This is accomplished through preparedness strategies and tactics developed across a wide spectrum of potential hazards so that the best approaches are implemented before a disaster occurs.
