My Bio

Wm. F. “Bill” Cunningham, Jr.

CEOP | USCG- Vet | CEO / Developer
As a professional tall ship sailor in the U.S. Coast Guard, he learned the intricacies of literally hundreds of moving pieces and people working together.

In his litigation career, with more than 35 years’ experience as a Law Firm Administrator guiding over 4,000 businesses through the litigation process, if a case from his firm was resolvable before trial, it was resolved. His specialties were Business, Human Resources, Eminent Domain, Construction, and IRS assistance. The national credential of Certified Paralegal further assured clients of attention to detail that helped move their case forward.

That work required digging into a client’s business at an intimate level that brought insights to its weakness and operational needs so that potential future litigation was mitigated.

Working as a volunteer in the Santa Ana Urban Area for the DHS Urban Area Strategic Initiative brought amazing and rewarding success in bringing businesses together to help each other. Several businesspeople realized that as responsible business-people their purpose is to help themselves until First Responders arrive.

On 9/11/2008, with the help and encouragement of several leaders, Bill established BERT – Emergency Operations Management. With his innate ability and experience to bond with all sizes of businesses and all levels of management, the common description is one of “..making the material come alive” He is a nationally certified Emergency Operations Professional from ACAC.org.

BERT Supports Safety teams inside any company or organization to implement and expand their influence to develop a culture of safety using state of the art technology in APPs and training programs. Using EMERGALINK, companies can tie themselves together to help each other in any systemic emergency. BERT has grown into a strong, viable resource for OSHA compliance and VPP designated companies.

As a respected consultant in the OSHA mandate environment, he has deftly guided clients through GAP analysis and comprehensive implementation of Injury Illness Prevention Programs, exploration of aspirational OSHA credentials in the VPP – Voluntary Protection Program and SHARP – Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Programs and the new WVPP – Workplace Violence/Intruder Prevention mandate. He has presented at local and regional VPP and safety conferences on the importance of a culture of safety as a basis of good business practices.
