How we can help
The Whole Community approach reinforces the importance of establishing relationships between public sector stakeholders and community groups and members to ensure that disaster planning, response, and recovery operations reflect the needs of the broader community. This includes planning for the access and functional needs of people with disabilities, young children, older adults, low income, homeless, or transportation disadvantaged individuals, those with limited English proficiency, and more. CONSTANT has experience with disaster-related equitable and diverse stakeholder engagement, whether conducted to inform outcomes of a larger project and/or developed as its own initiative.
Our services can be used to improve community emergency preparedness, communicate a new tool or resource, and/or engage people (industry or community) for feedback and input on an initiative or program. We take a multi-pronged approach inclusive of traditional and new media, and reflective of the specific objectives identified by our clients. Our results-driven campaigns are rooted in an equity lens and are designed to create awareness and inspire resilience.

We help companies stay ahead in a rapidly changing world.
Award-Winning Outreach and Marketing
CONSTANT incorporates Whole Community outreach and engagement into each and every project that we develop. We provide demonstrated success with both marketing and stakeholder outreach for federal, state, and local organizations.
CBRNE Industry Outreach
IMAAC, a DTRA and FEMA support center, provides models, such as plume modeling, for disasters involving CBRNE agents. In support of IMAAC, CONSTANT leads an extensive outreach and advertising program to raise awareness of the program. CONSTANT provides training on response modeling and information sharing to fire departments, law enforcement, emergency management agencies, public health departments, and critical infrastructure owners and operators in coordination with IMAAC. In this capacity, CONSTANT has facilitated critical partnerships that better position the U.S. to prevent, prepare for, respond to, mitigate against, and recover from new and emerging CBRNE threats.
Technical Community Outreach
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (CDHCD) required creative solutions in engaging the community regarding CDBG-DR funds. CONSTANT supported this effort by creating multilingual fact sheets, executing public outreach strategies, planning and conducting public and online grant information meetings, and identifying and accommodating language and access needs for all community-facing documentation. We also developed a design and implementation strategy to manage proposed projects over the life of the grant.
Community Preparedness Marketing
Engaging the community requires creating solutions. CONSTANT supported the Los Angeles Ready Your LA Neighborhood (RYLAN) program through marketing that included the refresh of existing marketing and training materials, translation services, and the development of an outreach toolkit. CONSTANT provided a redesigned version of the City’s fill-in readiness template by collaborating with stakeholders to determine stylistic preferences such as color scheme, use of logos, and sample materials that depict the desired look and feel of the template.
