DevTech provided technical, management, and administrative support on activities related to emergency management, including planning for, mitigating, and responding to a wide range of emergencies such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods. DevTech’s technical support entailed research into relevant public policy and studies of the economic consequences of disasters. Other support required DevTech to establish a resources database, participate in the design and execution of public information programs, and organize and conduct conferences and other events where information about hazard mitigation and response is transferred.
