JER Consulting LLC was formed in 2002 by John E. Roberts to assist responders in building capacity for emergency response.

From an initial emphasis solely on providing certified NIMS/ICS (National Incident Management System /Incident Command System) training, John has expanded to support the needs of corporate and international entities and NGOs who use the planning frameworks to address an ever-growing list of emergency challenges that include Incident Management, Continuity of Operations (COOP) and Multi-Agency Coordination for things such as earthquake relief, avian influenza, public health, food safety, foreign animal disease, and pet sheltering.

To date, JER Consulting has served more than 30 state governments, multiple private sector entities, federal agencies, sovereign nations, universities, hospitals, and veterinary schools. John served with National Area Command Teams (Command and Plans) through 2005. In order to retain early access to critical international and domestic security information, JER Consulting LLC is a constituent of OSAC, the Overseas Security Advisory Council administered by the Department of State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, and a member of Infragard, the partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the private sector.
