The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) relies on experienced emergency response and preparedness professionals to guide its research and development efforts. The First Responder Resource Group (FRRG) fills that role.
Comprised of 120 active and retired first responders, the FRRG is an all-volunteer working group that helps S&T maintain focus on the top-priority needs of responders in the field. The members are drawn from a broad range of disciplines (law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical service, emergency management, etc.) and sectors (local, state, tribal, and federal government, as well as professional associations and the private sector) and all regions of the country.
