Our mission

To help communities prepare for the impacts of climate change

We're engineers, designers and planners concerned with the changes occurring in our climate. We are working to make sure communities are prepared to deal with the far-reaching impacts.

We built Forerunner on the belief that preparation is a necessity, not a luxury, and communities deserve access to powerful tools that help them plan for the future.

We set out to build modern, easy-to-use risk mitigation tools, and our team is hard at work bringing that vision to life today.
