A Comprehensive Emergency Management Program (CEMP) stands as a comprehensive and inclusive framework that encompasses all-encompassing hazard considerations, extending to terrorism, and incorporates every facet of emergency management and homeland security. This multifaceted approach spans the spectrum of mitigation, preparedness, protection, prevention, response, and recovery. Not merely reserved for addressing day-to-day disruptions or ensuring continuity of operations, a CEMP is an indispensable asset for orchestrating responses and facilitating recoveries in the face of large-scale emergencies. It serves as the bedrock for equipping communities and businesses with the resilience needed to confront any emergency head-on.

At All Hands Consulting, our commitment to CEMP support is unwavering, bolstered by a diverse cadre of experts and services that comprehensively address all elements integral to a sound emergency management program. Our approach to program development is rooted in the latest industry standards and best practices, ensuring that our solutions are not only robust but also adaptive to evolving challenges. We meticulously capture program details, weaving them into the fabric of a jurisdiction's CEMP, thereby providing a tailored and effective roadmap for navigating the complexities of emergency preparedness, response, and recovery.


The inception of the All Hands concept traces back to 1978, a milestone year marked by the visionary initiative of Rick LaValla, a distinguished State of Washington emergency management official. This visionary endeavor took shape through the establishment of the Emergency Response Institute (ERI International), an organization that quickly rose to prominence for its unparalleled expertise in Emergency Management, Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Response and Recovery, Search and Rescue, Survival Education, and Emergency Preparedness. ERI International, with its roots firmly embedded in the year of its founding, 1978, has evolved into a global entity, playing a pivotal role in shaping the landscape of emergency management. Now an integral part of the expansive All Hands Consulting network, ERI continues to be a beacon of excellence in the field. Renowned for its prolific publications spanning disaster planning, emergency management, search and rescue, and survival education, ERI has been instrumental in advancing innovative planning and training programs across the United States and European communities. ERI's impact reverberates through its significant contributions to the development and dissemination of cutting-edge strategies in community and industrial emergency management, disaster response planning, and search and rescue. As proud members of the All Hands Consulting family, entities like ERI and their associates have actively collaborated with numerous state and local governments, lending their expertise to the design and implementation of robust emergency management programs, disaster plans, and impactful exercises.

With a rich background encompassing 28 years of dedicated service in Maryland's local government, Steve Davis embarked on an entrepreneurial journey, giving rise to DavisLogic in 1995. This venture, initially a modest consultancy, swiftly established itself as a specialized authority in business continuity, emergency management, and command center operations under Mr. Davis's astute leadership. Pioneering the integration of traditional emergency management principles into continuity of operations planning and the application of cutting-edge technology in the field, Mr. Davis emerged as a visionary leader in the industry. His prolific contributions extend beyond consultancy, with a portfolio boasting over 20 published articles and a remarkable record of more than 200 presentations on relevant topics.

The dawn of the new millennium saw a momentous collaboration between Mr. LaValla and Mr. Davis, culminating in the creation of All Hands Consulting in the early 2000s. This strategic alliance was forged to synergize their individual strengths and to further develop their shared ideals of mutual cooperation and partnership—an ethos that had proven successful over a quarter of a century. With a collective experience of over 25 years, All Hands Consulting has been an unwavering force in the delivery of emergency management and homeland security services. The amalgamation of Mr. LaValla's and Mr. Davis's expertise has not only fortified the consultancy's foundation but has also solidified its standing as a trusted and enduring presence in the field.

In the transformative year of 2023, All Hands Consulting underwent an acquisition that ushered in a new era of growth and innovation. This strategic move not only marked a pivotal moment in our corporate history but also paved the way for a substantial augmentation of back-end support, thereby fortifying and elevating the overall service offerings provided by All Hands Consulting. This synergistic process has empowered us to deliver an even more comprehensive and enhanced suite of services to our valued clientele.
