SBIR First Responder Showcase 2024
Tue, 06/18/2024 – 14:36


The DHS Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program invites you to attend the virtual SBIR First Responder Showcase. This two-day webinar series on July 9 – 10, 2024, from 1 – 3 p.m. E.T., will showcase small business innovators developing 10 new technologies to keep our nation’s frontline workers, emergency managers, and incident commanders better protected, connected, and prepared to safeguard the homeland and respond to disasters. Visit the registration page to RSVP for the webinar.

With technology needs ranging from public safety communications and operational support to chem/bio detection, it is vital to keep our nation’s first responders equipped with the tools and capabilities they need to carry out their mission. DHS works with members of all first responder disciplines—law enforcement, fire services, emergency medical services and emergency management officials, as well as innovators and industry—to develop innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges faced by first responders as they respond to hazardous situations. Register to join us and learn how SBIR awardees are innovating for first responder technology needs.
