"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing."

Blackhawk Emergency Management Group


Blackhawk Emergency Management Group, LLC based in Rochester, New York, is a veteran-owned, rapidly growing organization specializing in disaster prevention and emergency management for education, healthcare, houses of worship, business, government, not-for-profits, families, individuals, and much more.


Blackhawk EMG provides Emergency Management as a Service (EMaaS) and follows the "Special Operations" model, bringing together our group of highly trained experts from many disciplines to form a cohesive team, thereby increasing overall synergy to support the client’s emergency management needs. We believe it is the quality of individuals within an organization — not the quantity — that ensures success.









Taking action now — reducing loss of life and property later.




A continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating, and taking corrective action. 




Putting your emergency plan into action — saving lives and property.







Rebuilding so individuals, businesses and government infrastructure can function on their own.


Our Commitment 

Blackhawk EMG supports the "whole community" approach, which suggests results are more effective when the entire community joins to solve a problem. Recognizing that preparedness is a shared responsibility, President Barack Obama signed Presidential Policy Directive 8 / PPD-8: National Preparedness on March 30, 2011. The directive requires the involvement of everyone — not just government — in a systematic effort to keep the nation safe from harm, and resilient when struck by hazards, such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism and pandemics.
