Project Responder 5


This fifth round of Project Responder (PR5) reexamines and updates emergency response capability needs in light of current operational demands, new and emergent threats and hazards, new environmental conditions and recent technology advancements. These capability needs are substantially different from those with which the field was most concerned in the wake of 9/11. The findings from the project can inform the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) decisions about investments in projects and programs to promote capability enhancement, with particular attention to technology development, but also in the areas of related research initiatives, training and education and policy analysis and development.
