Blue Ridge Emergency Preparedness Group, LLC (BREPG) is a small business that was founded in Granite Falls, North Carolina. BREPG’s business plan is to provide experienced Emergency Management Personnel at the best cost to the client. Timothy D. Miller, retired North Carolina Emergency Management, formed BREPG in 2007 as an Individual/Sole proprietor to work with other sub-contractors to provide qualified personnel at the best cost to the client. In 2010, Mr. Miller saw the need to expand BREPG to allow greater reach across the State of North Carolina and beyond. At that time, Jordan E. Rink, joined the company as a managing partner to expand BREPG’s capabilities across central and eastern North Carolina.
