Tues./June 10 at 2 p.m. – Session 2: S&T panel discussion on Active Shooter Threat Planning and Response
- Visit S&T’s Exhibit Booth #127-#128 and participate in our EDGE Active Shooter Virtual Training and get educated on how S&T technologies are building community resilience during hurricane season.
- What: EDGE - Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment Virtual Training, gives first responders new capabilities to train individually or with responders from other agencies, disciplines and jurisdictions to prepare for a coordinated incident response. S&T developed this virtual training environment so every jurisdiction in the country could access — free of charge — and prepare for active shooter events and other critical incidents.
- What: Learn how S&T developed technologies being deployed today enhance capabilities that mitigate risks, improve decision-making, and drive efficiencies during hurricane season, including evacuations.
Weds./June 11 at 11:15 a.m. – Session 4: S&T Roundtable on Enhancing Coordinated Response with Houston, Texas, Emergency Response.
- What: As threats and technologies evolve, S&T’s Next Generation First Responder Program is partnering with Houston, TX -area public safety agencies and the U.S. Coast Guard to evaluate responder technology integration and enhanced mission capabilities.
- Join this conversation on and learn S&T is changing the paradigm of region-wide coordination and technology integration to make responders better protected, connected and fully aware.
Thurs./ June 12 at 10 a.m. – Opening Session: S&T Acting Under Secretary, Bill Bryan will provide keynote remarks, Metropolitan Ballroom.
- What: These remarks will speak to how S&T is delivering technology solutions that enable emergency responders to keep pace with threats, respond to critical incidents, and adapt to changing operational environments. Don’t this opportunity to hear how S&T’s R&D process is accelerating technology development and helping communities build resilience capacity during hurricane season!
