In Their Own Words: Testimonials

Three Portraits of Firefighters

The Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) works hand in hand with first responders to understand their technology needs, design and develop innovative prototypes, and field-test products before they transition to the commercial marketplace. With POINTER, S&T continues to engage with members of the fire service from across the country to make sure we get this groundbreaking technology right.

In our new video series, firefighters contribute poignant stories from their own perspectives and draw from their own experiences to underscore why POINTER is so vital, how it works, what it means to be part of S&T’s R&D process, and how this technology will save lives.
