U.S. Government Departments and Agencies participated in a Safety Stand Down exercise to enhance biosafety and biosecurity at all federal laboratories. The Science and Technology Directorate led the Department of Homeland Security’s participation in these Safety Stand-Down activities.
S&T funded the mobile security application archiving technology which helps the government vet and inventory mobile applications quickly.
Disasters aren’t constrained by borders, so emergency response can’t be constrained either. If a hurricane were to cause major damage in cities within the United States and Canada, responders and government leaders from both countries may need to work together to provide emergency assistance.

I love this time of year. It is the season of family, friends, good will and lots of good food! It is a season of hope and best wishes. Regardless of where or how you celebrate this holiday season, I hope that you enjoy a much deserved respite with loved ones and take time to relax and recharge for the New Year.
At this joyous time of year, I have to take a moment to pause and reflect on all the men and women who will not be with their families: responders, military, and others who constantly work to keep our nation safe.
In considering the abundance of gifts that will be given and received over this holiday season, I can’t help but think that one of the greatest gifts we have as Americans is our freedom. I am grateful to all who contribute to keeping us safe and free.
Throughout the year, everyone here at the Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) strives to identify, develop and advance technological solutions for making our nation safer and more resilient.
It has been my pleasure this year to serve this great nation working alongside the dedicated men and women of S&T. From all of us at S&T, Happy Holidays!
