Parsons will complete several TIM tasks, including a gap analysis to identify recommendations for coalition improvements; a statewide strategic improvement plan; operations policies, plans, and interagency agreements; TIM performance measures; legislative recommendations; construction guidelines for TIM plans; training and outreach; and communication protocols between responders.Parsons is a technology-driven engineering services firm with more than 70 years of experience in the engineering, construction, technical, and professional services industries.
