Odysseus™ Network:

 

Integrated Solutions Consulting (ISC) assists clients to develop All-Hazard Mitigation Plans that identify and integrate essential mitigation strategies and actions for natural, technological, and political (terrorism) hazards.

The All-Hazard Mitigation Plan is developed in accordance with the latest requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000), while also incorporating key strategies identified in the National Response Framework and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) initiatives, directives, and strategies. ISC has documented success that this approach to mitigation planning not only enhances the quality of a community’s hazard mitigation plan, but also improves its ability to be operationalized and implemented in a post-disaster setting.
