Welcome to, the online home of Disaster Safety Strategies. For the past 15 years, DSS principals Eric Cote and Cara Klein have provided a wide range of services to corporate, non-profit, academic and government clients seeking to enhance safety and disaster recovery through research, public education, coalition development, policy change and building code modification.

Regardless of your need, few agencies in America can match DSS’s expertise when it comes to advancing policies or crafting messages that will make Americans safer in the face of natural or man-made disasters. We invite you to contact agency principals Eric Cote or Cara Klein to discuss how we can work together to make America a safer nation.
