Critical Preparedness and Response Solutions (CPARS Consulting, Inc.) was founded by three practicing emergency management professionals in 2008 to bring quality, expertise, and integrity to the emergency management, homeland security, crisis resolution, and business continuity consulting fields.  While two of the original partners still serve as advisors, the company is now wholly owned and operated by original partner, Nick Lowe. Every one of our solutions is tailor made for the client, and every client is treated like the company’s only one.  CPARS provides end-to-end, full service support to clients in the public and private sectors and non-governmental organizations.  

CPARS' greatest strength is that all of its consultants are current or recent practicing emergency management, public safety and health, corporate security, or business continuity professionals.  This advantage allows CPARS to ensure our clients receive support, advice, and solutions that are in line with current emergency management trends and standards.  Our team maintains constant and relative expertise, validated with real world implementation experience, in cutting-edge industry principles, practices, and tools.  As current practitioners, we understand the challenges and opportunities that our clients face.  We bring unmatched practicality and a shared experience and understanding.  Our ultimate goal is to assist our clients in becoming fully prepared to mitigate, prevent, respond to, and recover from emergencies or impacts on their business.  We enjoy sharing our expertise and teaching our clients how to achieve self reliance.  We take a "teach you how to fish" approach versus "providing you the fish."  And we pride ourselves on the motto: “practicing professionals – innovative ideas.” 

CPARS is a certified Small Business Enterprise (SBE) through the California Department of General Services (#2004433)
based in the greater Los Angeles, California area.
