NNSA’s Office of Emergency Operations participated in “DHS Day on the Hill,” sponsored by the House Committee on Homeland Security, last week at the Cannon House Office Building.
The event was an opportunity for each respective Department of Homeland Security component to demonstrate and showcase to members of Congress their unique capabilities and projects which contribute to the broad mission of DHS.
As part of the event, NNSA helped showcase the RadResponder initiative, which is a FEMA-funded software initiative that provides state and local organizations the ability to report and manage environmental radiation monitoring data. During a large-scale radiological emergency, the state and local data will be available to the Federal Radiological Monitoring and Assessment Center (FRMAC) and integrated into the data collected by the FRMAC, providing decision makers a robust set of data to use when taking action to protect the public.
