(Who the heck is ROGER?)

Chris Joffe

A Letter from Founder and CEO, Chris Joffe

At Joffe Emergency Services, our mission is to shape and improve school, business, and event safety. We believe safety should be fun, empowering, and transformative. By staying true to our mission, we’ve helped protect millions of lives since 2007.

Each interaction you have with preparedness should be matched with a deeper investment and a more powerful understanding. That’s why we’re in the business of professionalizing the field of emergency and disaster education. When communities we’ve engaged with understand the underlying concepts without fear or apprehension, we believe we’ve succeeded. Every successful training, drill, or life saved is cause for celebration, and every challenge is an opportunity.

Our strong commitment to excellence has given us the edge in technology, resources, and partnerships, providing the best possible solutions to our clients for any emergency situation that may arise. Responding to the very emergencies we train our communities to prevent allows us incredibly authentic real-world scenarios and a unique ability to understand our communities’ culture.

In addition, we offer clients several levels of preparedness with our vitals and essentials plans, as well as an online webinar series alternative. Products such as emergency food and water, lockdown kits, and AEDs are available to order.

As we continue this conversation, we hope to specify what will become our shared vision for this work. As always, thank you for your time, energy, and willingness to participate in creating a safer world.
