Guest post from Greg Price, Director of First Responder Technologies for the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) First Responders Group (FRG)
FRG’s First Responder Technologies (R-Tech) division is all about…you guessed it…developing cutting-edge technology for our nation’s first responders. Our mission: maximize their preparedness, enhance their efficiency and identify quick, innovative solutions to the problems that they — firefighters, paramedics, police, incident commanders, search and rescue task forces, dispatchers, bomb technicians, and all other disciplines — face every day.
In 2015, R-Tech did just that — transitioned several such technologies first responders will soon get their hands on (or in) to. I am excited to share five of these with you today, as well as a sneak peek of some brand new equipment on the horizon for 2016.
