The first step is to call or email us to request a free, no obligation initial consultation.  During this session, we will get to know your needs for first responder planning efforts.    Once your project deliverables are understood, a scope of work is written for your review.  If acceptable, a total “not to exceed” estimate price is determined based upon the amount of hours we expect it will take us to complete the work.  If the project takes us longer than expected, there is no additional charge.  If it takes us less time to finish the job, than the price is based upon actual hours. Once a formal contract is signed, BeaconGIS begins right away with gathering data and other pertinent information, and interviewing stakeholders of your agencies.
