Get Ready to Love Analytics as Much as We Do

We’re academics. We’re analysts. And, we’re not going to lie, we really love data. You might not be there yet. But when you can see what we see—clear opportunities to save money, solve challenges, and save lives—you’re going to be just as excited as we are about the power of data. We look forward to working with you to make a difference in your community.

We have been helping emergency services since 2001. With deep roots in academia and broad experience in all sizes of services, we pride ourselves on making a difference.
