Harry Crapo

Senior Managing Director, Emergency Preparedness
Harry is an emergency preparedness expert with more than 30 years of experience committed to helping communities plan and prepare for hazard disasters.
Harry provides executive-level management for projects in our emergency preparedness portfolio of projects. He has over 30 years of experience advising the federal government, including more than two decades in an executive management capacity, over 15 years with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its components, and nearly 10 years supporting the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 

Harry is a strong, client-oriented leader with excellent management, communication, and problem-solving skills. He managed both domestic and international teams in the following areas: assisting federal agencies in developing their strategic vision, mission, goals, and performance measures; identifying capability and performance gaps, risk management, data analytics, and program management; and developing risk-based resource allocation strategies. 

Harry oversees federal contracts, such as the FEMA Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REPP), which provides policy assessment, development, training, program management, data analytics, and exercise evaluation. With his support, REPP enhanced its planning, preparedness, and response to all types of peacetime radiological emergencies in coordination with federal, state, and local governments. He also helps the private sector through exercises that measure protection capabilities for people who live near nuclear power plants. 

Harry supervises the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response’s Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (TRACIE) project for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. TRACIE is a healthcare emergency preparedness information gateway that addresses enhanced and rapid technical assistance, including a comprehensive, one-stop, national knowledge center for healthcare system preparedness, ways to efficiently share and receive information between entities, and options to leverage and integrate support (virtual force multiplier). Harry’s guidance also assists TRACIE prepare deployed and field staff via our technical resources and subject matter experts with technical resources, an assistance center, and information exchange domains.

Earlier in his career, Harry provided advisory and management support to a number of federal agencies, including the U.S. Navy, Army, Federal Aviation Administration, National Institutes of Health, Small Business Administration, and DHS. He led a team providing services to the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis in support of a national network of 78 state, local, tribal, and territorial fusion centers. As part of this, he oversaw the development of a performance management framework to evaluate and measure the effectiveness of the fusion centers—including the development of a formal annual assessment report—and strategies and methods to communicate the value of the national network to the public, DHS components, Congress, other federal agencies, and state, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector partners. 

Harry also supported the Army Force Provider program’s technical assistance team. It tests and evaluates temporary forward operating base set-ups, and then deploys staff outside the contiguous United States with the military to assist with training, set up, maintenance, and troubleshooting. His team also supported the Future Capabilities Integration Laboratory used for site planning, experimentation, and integration of new equipment, technical inspections, and testing to improve product quality and energy efficiency.

Harry holds a bachelor’s degree from Stonehill College and Building and Leading Effective Teams certificate from Columbia University Business School.
