Chevy Chase, MD, 7/10/2015 – Davies Consulting has launched an annual North American Utility Emergency Management Benchmarking Study and Awards to recognize leading emergency management practices among energy utilities.

Using methodology and metrics developed by Davies Consulting, utility performance will be evaluated in emergency prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. A panel of leaders in utility emergency management, including utility executives and others who are actively engaged in leading-edge planning and practices, will review the Davies Consulting benchmark results to acknowledge exceptional performance in the following categories:

  • Emergency Management Excellence & Regional Leadership;
  • Emergency Communications Excellence;
  • Most Innovative Emergency Management Practice;
  • Best Emergency Response; and
  • The Hero Award, recognizing a utility responder who went above and beyond the call of duty during an emergency.

Participants and award winners will be acknowledged at a May 2016 executive awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Interested utilities should contact Julie Clendenin, jclendenin@daviescon.com, for more information.
