"This issue of the First Responders Technologies Program newsletter has four articles. The first article, "Mapping the Future," discusses Hazards U.S. Multi-Hazard (HAZUS-MH), computer software that uses geographic information systems to "estimate the probability and potential consequences of earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods." The second article, "Random Acts," describes the Assistant for Randomized Monitoring Over Routes (ARMOR) program, which "eliminates the predictability of security patrols, checkpoints, and other scheduled and routine security measures." The third article, "Long-Distance Triage Technology," examines the Standoff Patient Triage Tool (SPTT), which takes physiological readings from up to 40 feet away. Finally, the last section discusses the Responder Knowledge Base's exhaustive product list."
