COVID19 Emergency Management

Resources and information related to Coronavirus

Founded in response to the global threat of Covid-19 by former FEMA Director James Lee Witt and Merlynn Carson, MD, CEO of Myriddian Healthcare, Aegis 19 (Aegis) provides comprehensive disaster preparedness, mitigation, response, recovery and emergency management advisory services to public and private sector organizations. The Aegis team collectively represent hundreds of years of private sector, public service, and government experience in the fields of emergency planning and response, population health, and project management.

COVID-19 PREPARATION

On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern” (PHEIC). On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Pandemic as confirmed cases of COVID-19 had spread to more than 100 countries.

In order to respond to COVID-19 and other current or emerging global and national events we have created a team to bring a holistic approach to disaster management. Each team member specializes in a specific niche that is broken out by the four stages of disaster recovery: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery. Our team and subject matter experts have the capabilities to provide a comprehensive approach to effectively utilize, manage and deploy resources with the goal of preparing our clients for rapid containment, recovery, and communications.

PAST PERFORMANCE & CAPABILITIES

We build lasting partnerships with our clients because we continually perform for them. We advise state and local governments, hospitals and health systems, institutions of higher education and K-12, water utilities and power districts, as well as the private sector as they seek solutions to the myriad of issues presented by disasters. We are there with our clients to help them turn such obstacles that arise into opportunities for strengthening communities.
