DHS S&T announced a Phase 1 Other Transaction award to Sentinel Occupational Safety (Sentinel), to develop safety monitoring technology for DHS personnel.
Co-hosted with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) School Safety Task Force and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology (OET), the goal of this Digital Forum was to engage with the education sector, school safety stakeholders, civil society, and technology companies to amplify programs and platforms that help reduce risk factors to the radicalization to violence, ensure broad awareness of the threat of targeted violence and terrorism, and share innovative solutions for prevention.
The Science and Technology Directorate is currently working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to develop a downloadable application—Safe Handling and Collection of Electronics, or “SHAKE”—that provides users with information and techniques to safely collect drones from the field.
A special thank you to the staff of DHS S&T, our government, private sector, and academic partners, and those who have served on the front lines to keep our nation safe and healthy, and a toast to all the amazing things that 2021 will hopefully bring!
More than 250 high school teachers were recently certified to become provisional instructors for the First Aid for Severe Trauma (FAST)TM program, which trains high school students to stop bleeding and treat injuries before first responders arrive to an incident.
