Description

Technologies for Critical Incident Preparedness Conference & Exposition


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate, Department of Justice (DOJ) National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and Department of Defense (DoD) Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense (OASD(HD)) present the 8th Annual Technologies for Critical Incident Preparedness Conference and Exposition.
Focusing on Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery, this three-day conference will allow the DHS S&T Directorate, DOJ NIJ and DoD OASD(HD) to highlight the technology and training tools currently available and being developed for the emergency responder community to deal with major threats to lives and property, such as natural disasters and terrorist attacks. With 1,200+ attendees and over 150 exhibits expected, this conference offers a unique opportunity for emergency responders, business and industry, academia, and Federal, State, local, and tribal officials to network, exchange ideas, and address common critical incident technology and preparedness needs and solutions.
Along with State and local practitioners, the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and Defense have significant and primary roles in the prevention of terrorist acts and in the response to the aftermath of such attacks as well as major natural disasters. Since 9-11, and to an even greater degree since the devastating hurricanes of 2005, technology development in support of homeland security, and specifically our Nation's infrastructure, has been a major focus. The need to continue to invest in critical incident preparedness and response, in addition to homeland security, will remain a major national interest for years.
