About Us

                                            More than just a check-box solution

Belfi Consulting, LLC was created for institutions and organizations looking for more than a check-box solution for emergency management. It was created for clients who want to not only establish a robust and reliable emergency response strategy but who want to develop and encourage a culture of preparedness and resilience. 

 

Our innovative services can be customized to support clients through every aspect of emergency management from planning and exercises, to navigating the challenges of post-disaster recovery operations. Belfi Consulting's ultimate goal is to help evolve emergency management for clients from what has been seen as a collateral duty for some to a committed responsibility for all.
