NGFR - Birmingham Shaken Fury Operational Experimentation Playbook


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) hosted the NGFR – Birmingham Shaken Fury Operational Experimentation (OpEx) on August 21-22, 2019, at Legion Field Stadium in Birmingham, Alabama, in partnership with regional public safety agencies and technology providers. During the OpEx, Birmingham-area first responders and federal partners used integrated responder technologies to enhance their mission capabilities in a search and rescue, mass casualty incident, and HAZMAT response resulting from an earthquake scenario. Together, DHS S&T and responders evaluated how selected DHS-developed and commercial technologies integrated with existing public safety systems using open standards, and how those integrated capabilities enhanced operational communications, increased operational coordination, improved responder safety and augmented situational awareness.
