Emergency Management

Cardno’s approach to emergency management is adaptive and practical, reflecting the dynamic state of post-conflict and post-disaster situations.

We work with both the government and private sector and apply commonly identified markers of good governance and equality. Our areas of expertise include providing technical and logistical support for natural disaster management and reconstruction, specialising in rapid mobilisation, coordinating emergency humanitarian efforts and advising on and managing reconstruction efforts.
At Cardno, we develop integrated strategies for peace building and recovery based on fair and inclusive processes. We also improve the transparency and accessibility of judicial systems and provide technical and logistical services to initiate development projects in post-conflict environments.
Additionally, we address the causes and consequences of conflict, employing a unique and innovative approach based on economic growth. We provide macro and fiscal policy advice, grants and financial management, social safety nets and policy and regulatory reform. We also advise governments and non-military bodies in facilitating reconciliation and cooperation.
Disaster Response
When disaster strikes, we understand the importance of rapid response to help you protect both human and environmental health and safety. Whether your project is related to water intrusion from a storm or flood, a building collapse from an explosion, or noxious gas from a chemical spill, Cardno can provide a comprehensive disaster response team within hours.
Our experienced, certified staff work discreetly behind the scenes, delivering accurate, timely data that helps you minimise liability exposure and comply with consent orders.
Cardno can help you:
  • Assess impacts to soil, surface water and groundwater
  • Inspect building structure integrity
  • Conduct welding, concrete, foundation and roofing inspections
  • Evaluate water intrusion impacts
  • Monitor migration of contaminants to air, water and soil
  • Mitigate migration of contaminants
  • Characterise and evaluate building material porosity (sheetrock, drywall, furnishings)
  • Identify and assess impacts of stored chemicals to surrounding areas and buildings
  • Test and monitor indoor air quality for noxious fumes to ensure there are no fugitive emissions or releases outside of regulatory parameters.
