Managing Emergency Response with Science and Technology


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) works closely with first responders to improve their safety and effectiveness—lending expertise, conducting research and development, and funding innovation to ensure our nation’s public safety services are well-equipped to provide aid in times of crisis. Those efforts are guided by direct engagement with responders from across the country as well as invaluable insight gained through the First Responder Resource Group. Experienced firefighters, paramedics, police officers, emergency managers, and other public safety disciplines across our nation volunteer to help S&T focus on top-priority needs and assess that technology solutions meet those needs. Thus, the emergency management community is naturally considered a key stakeholder and S&T is proud to serve the men and women sworn to protect all of us. The following is a select sampling of activities showcasing our work in support of emergency management.
