This is the July 25, 2018 hearing on "Using Innovative Technology and Practices to Enhance the Culture of Preparedness" held before the House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications. From the opening statement of Daniel M. Donovan: "We must work together at all levels of government and with the private sector and the public to identify new and innovative practices and technology that will enhance our prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery capabilities. We need to continually re-evaluate the policies and practices we use to respond and rebuild in the wake of a disaster. Investments in mitigation need to be made to create stronger, more resilient systems in a cost-effective manner. Local communities have to be empowered to manage their own basic needs and allow neighborhoods to come together to lend a helping hand. We need to ensure our first responders have the tools and cutting-edge technology that will enable them to get their vital jobs done, whether stopping terrorists or preparing for the next natural disaster." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel Kaniewski, Daniel M. Cotter, Dereck R. Orr, and John V. Kelly.
