In an effort to keep DHS.gov current, the archive contains outdated information that may not reflect current policy or programs.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) works with local, state, and federal organizations responsible for hometown security to address these barriers. The result is Virtual USA® (vUSA), an S&T program that demonstrates best practices for incident management information sharing (IMIS) across the first responder community. Four guiding principles served as a foundation for the creation of vUSA: improving sharing and collaboration at all government levels, building on existing investments, maintaining data rights and ownership, and partnering to ensure resilience.
