ClearAlert: Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanils Fact Sheet

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) partnered with Clear Scientific (CS) to develop a wearable sensor that can quickly provide first responders with critical information related to the toxicity of their environment in the presence of aerosolized fentanils.

With this wearable device, first responders will be able to quickly and accurately determine when they have been exposed to unsafe levels of aerosolized fentanils, allowing them to quickly exit the scene and administer medical countermeasures thus negating the risk of severe injury or death.
