Support for Emergency Responders
During the emergency response phase, JENSEN HUGHES performs in a support role, as this phase is largely the responsibility of staff on site, fire department and law enforcement personnel, and specialized emergency responders. Our experts have in the past served on industrial and municipal fire departments, emergency response teams, and in emergency management roles and are familiar with operations during catastrophic events.
As the event progresses, our experts can provide feedback as to the extent of developing hazards. We can assess the potential for explosions as a function of temperature and pressure conditions, the potential for fire spread, and risk posed by hazardous materials that may be involved.
We can also provide several valuable services post-event, incorporating our forensic teams and other subject matter experts to perform post-event reconstructions, root-cause analyses, and catastrophic response services.
