Hammonton, NJ – August 2004 – Patricia M. Goelz, a partner at Emergency Preparedness Partnerships (EPP), was honored tonight by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority and the New Jersey Development Authority for Small Business, Minorities and Women’s Enterprises for graduating from the Entrepreneurial Training Institute at a ceremony held at the Lafayette Yard Marriott in Trenton, New Jersey.
Goelz is an engineer who has written, administered and evaluated emergency plans and drills for major corporations. Through EPP, Goelz also provides consulting services to the New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Association (NJEPA), which mounts the Northeast’s largest annual professional conference for emergency response agencies and personnel.
“This is an incredible honor, and words cannot express my extreme gratitude,” said Goelz. “I am definitely in tune with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, and the organization’s mission closely aligns with my own as well as with EPP, so it’s a perfect fit.”
EPP’s mission is to work with gas, electric and water utilities to audit, create, enhance, and practice their emergency plans. Like the company’s slogan says, it’s in the mission of helping organizations prevent their next emergency from becoming a disaster. EPP was clearly born out of need, and its business is growing every year.
