ABOUT our founder
Ryan Kerwin is a former United States Marine who honorably served his country for four years as a Sergeant in an Infantry Anti-Armor platoon. This is where Ryan began to understand the importance of education, training, and preparation. Upon returning home from the Marine Corps, Ryan was hired by a municipal Fire Department where he currently serves as a Fire Captain.
Throughout his duties, he encounters everyday citizens who may be experiencing one of the worst days of their lives and the losses that comes with those emergencies. Ryan realized that there was a gap in personal disaster preparedness efforts due to a perceived sense of safety, confusing/conflicting information and unrefined safety education or skill sets to place the minimum necessary "preps" into motion. Ryan determined that the best course of action of those impacted by these events could have been made easier by being proactive in preparation versus reactive in the recovery process.
Ryan felt it prudent to close the emergency preparedness gap by providing a service that can offer peace of mind before a disaster strikes, especially in these uncertain times. EVP was created after years of personal research, experience, and continuous education regarding public safety.
Ryan graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Public Safety Administration from the University of Maryland Global Campus and continues to seek educational and personal growth opportunities along with his family, faith, friends and community by his side.
WHY BE PREPARED?
It is your responsibility to achieve a level of safety and security for yourself and your loved ones. An important point to remember about emergency preparedness planning is that the process is not meant to consume our lives preparing for "the end of the world" but to give us the peace of mind to enjoy the world.
The EVP ethos is principled in knowledge, integrity, and dependability. EVP is based in ethics and is family and faith focused that concentrates on providing emergency preparedness services that will confidently inspire the client to seek continued preparedness opportunities.
WE PROMOTE EMERGENCY READINESS, PROVIDE EDUCATION AND INSTRUCTION, AND PREPARE A VIGILANT COMMUNITY OF STRONG CITIZENS, PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY READY TO FACE AN ALL-HAZARDS ENVIRONMENT.
DID YOU KNOW?!
"When the 2020 pandemic struck, 78% of Americans were not prepared when it came to food and water stockpiles."
Having an emergency plan, preparations, training and enough supplies on hand should be a top priority for you and your family's safety prior to the start of an emergency event.
