In May 2012, Timothy Riecker (Partner) and Dr. Robin Voetterl (Managing Partner) launched a new business venture, Emergency Preparedness Solutions, LLC, a private consulting firm that specializes in emergency and disaster planning, exercises and training. Emergency Preparedness Solutions targets the private sector, not for profit clients, and government agencies.
Timothy Riecker is especially happy to be celebrating this new launch in Utica, New York. With more than 13 years experience in the field of emergency and disaster management, Riecker feels that he has a lot to bring to the table. “There’s no better time than now for me to launch this company,” says Riecker. “After gaining experience in all kinds of naturally occurring and human-caused disasters, I feel ready to take this on.”
No one would disagree that Riecker is ready to handle anything that might come his way. In his 13 years of emergency management, Timothy M Riecker responded to 19 federally declared disasters and emergencies.
“I saw a lot of terrible disasters that really covered many different areas,” says Timothy Riecker. “From the World Trade Center attacks to bridge failures to the Northeast Blackout of ’03, I’ve picked up a thing or two.”
In addition to handling his fair share of real-world crises, Timothy Riecker has also been the recipient of numerous accolades, honors, and certifications. Riecker considers one of his biggest career achievements to be obtaining FEMA certification as a Master Trainer. Riecker is also an accomplished speaker, editor, and writer in the emergency and disaster relief field.
As Riecker and Voetterl build their new company, the website for Emergency Preparedness Solutions, LLC, should arrive soon. For the time being, EPS has literature on the company, its services, and accomplishments. “A website should be coming forth very soon,” comments Timothy Riecker. “We’ve just about got all of the final details polished and ready to go! Once that’s up, Emergency Preparedness Solutions will be in full swing.”
