About Navigating Preparedness

Established to Meet an Acute Need

Over the past 25 years, disasters have taken an increasing toll on lives and livelihoods.

We address that need by providing prompt, and professional preparedness support.

Our History

NPA was established in 2014. Our first client was the Port of Oakland, followed by the San Francisco Bay Ferry.

From a boutique firm providing maritime homeland security and disaster response operational planning, NPA has diversified to deliver a broad range of emergency preparedness solutions. We are a federally certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and a California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE).

Hazard mitigation planning and pre-disaster management plans for critical infrastructure. We have written or updated dozens of LHMPs. We understand the requirements of DMA 2000. We will work closely with Cal OES and FEMA Region IX to make sure your plan is rapidly approved.
