What kinds of tools do first responders need to deal with emergencies? And how can improvements in science and technology help police and firefighters to do their jobs? One branch of the Department of Homeland Security is out on the West Coast today, wrapping up a three-day conference to assess the needs of first responders.

Since Tuesday, DHS’s Science and Technology Directorate has been meeting with approximately 200 first responders, primarily from the Western states, at the Meydenbauer Conference Center in Belleview, Washington, just south of Seattle. (FedNewsRadio)
