It’s hard to believe 2017 is already coming to a close. As we all take time to look back on our accomplishments this year, I want to extend my sincere thanks to S&T’s staff, partners, and stakeholders who make everything possible. S&T is fortunate to have so many incredibly talented people who put their skills to work on cutting-edge projects, and I’m eager to see what we accomplish together in 2018.
To our stakeholders in the field, whether in DHS components or public safety agencies across the nation, thank you for all you do to keep our communities and nation safe. I hope you have time this holiday season to celebrate with your loved ones and enjoy a well-earned rest. Your dedication inspires the best in us all, and it is S&T’s great honor to support your work.
We rely heavily on our industry partners to help us develop the solutions responders and members of the Homeland Security Enterprise depend on every day. I look forward to continuing and growing partnerships and relationships in the new year.
I especially want to acknowledge the responders and officials working tirelessly on response and recovery efforts from the recent California wildfires and Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma. Many Americans are still getting back on their feet after surviving devastating natural disasters this year, and those who continue supporting them truly embody what this time of year is all about.
I hope the holidays are a source of peace and comfort for us all, and may you have a safe, joyful New Year’s!
