Critical Response Technologies (CRT) is an emergency planning, safety & security engineering consultancy - designers and architects of the Aegis™ software platform. Aegis is the virtual “hub” of CRT’s emergency management solutions. Aegis animates the execution of FEMA’s “All Hazards” protocols (Prevention, Preparedness, Response, Recovery, Mitigation), and the Incident Command System (ICS), the national standard for protecting Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR’s). These client locations (facilities, buildings, complexes, venues), are where the citizen public, frequent, on a daily basis, for work, shopping, recreation, healthcare, education, worship, governing, public utilities, banking, manufacturing, and more.
Our clients are the property management teams and facility owners who are responsible for these properties, and more importantly, for their occupants. CRT delivers this critical emergency planning and response technology tool to the fingertips of our clients, and to their first responding public safety agencies (police, fire and emergency medical), via a website interface and mobile application. Stakeholders are now “armed” with a comprehensive, cutting-edge, knowledgebase of interactive actionable intelligence, specific to their property.
Critical Response Technologies’ origins extend back to the mid 1990’s with Mr. Frank Harper. At that time Mr. Harper was serving as a police officer in the San Francisco Bay Area where he gained experience working in a wide variety of assignments spanning a twenty-five-year career.
Following retirement from law enforcement Mr. Harper began working as a security consultant. Over the next 15 years he was employed, as a senior security consultant, with several large engineering companies and government contractors, domestically and internationally. Job duties have included emergency planning, security, risk & vulnerability assessments, anti-terrorism force protection, electronic security design and installation planning, quality control management for high-level security guard services and related training assignments across all disciplines. Clients have included public utilities, the military, state, local and federal government agencies, private organizations and a diverse variety of commercial business entities.
As CRT’s founder Mr. Harper has leveraged over 40 years of education, experience and professional relationships to assemble a premiere emergency management and disaster response consultancy. CRT has attracted highly respected and experienced business partners to complement world-class consulting talent. This enables CRT to effectively serve our nation’s critical infrastructure with sophisticated, cutting-edge safety, security and emergency planning solutions. We also address the specialized needs of the highly regulated healthcare industry, for not only emergency preparedness and response solutions, but for mitigating liabilities related to patient records privacy, associated with compliance regulations, as specified by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
Saving lives, protecting property assets, limiting liability, ensuring compliance and providing a rapid, safe, informed response to any emergency situation - this is the mission of our founders and the guiding principles of Critical Response Technologies, Inc.
