S&T NGFR – Birmingham Shaken Fury Operational Experimentation

For NGFR’s last operational experiment, the program has partnered with Birmingham-area public safety agencies in a HAZMAT and Search and Rescue incident response resulting from an earthquake scenario. This OpEx is affiliated with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s 2019 Shaken Fury exercise hosted by FEMA and will focus on a simulated major earthquake in Memphis, Tennessee that will impact middle America including the state of Alabama. The OpEx is also an opportunity for Birmingham-area public safety agencies to enhance their mission capabilities in advance of the World Games which the city of Birmingham will host in June 2021.

S&T SCITI Labs: Autonomous Platforms Fact Sheet

Emergencies can happen anywhere, which is why public safety personnel are trained for search and rescue operations in a variety of environments. Some of the environments are difficult, and conditions can endanger responders and those they aim to rescue. For this reason, one of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Smart City IoT Innovation (SCITI - pronounced ‘CITY’) Labs initiative’s focus areas is autonomous platforms (AxPs) for search and rescue operations. The other two focuses include investigating building sensor suites and an on-body communications hub.
