About Trivirtus Solutions Group
In the days following October 29th, 2012 (Super Storm Sandy), New Yorkers learned a number of things: We learned that our spirit is continuously unwavering and that we are capable of unyielding compassion and philanthropy. We also now know that there is no denying that we are subject to the very worst that Mother Nature has to offer. Above all things, we’ve learned that we are vulnerable. We’ve learned that from child, to business owner to first responder, there is much and more that we can do and learn to prepare ourselves for the unexpected and the extraordinary. Trivirtus Solutions Group aims to provide the comprehensive tools and training you need to declare independence in the face of any emergency.
