First Responder Communities of Practice
United States. Department of Homeland Security. Science and Technology Directorate
"According to the American Ambulance Association, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and U.S. Fire Administration, the responsibility for emergency services in the United States is spread out among more than 89,000 separate and independent agencies. This fragmentation, coupled with resource constraints and the lack of a common technology platform, inhibits public safety and emergency practitioners from collaborating on critical preparedness projects, sharing best practices and exchanging lessons learned across disciplines and jurisdictions. The First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP) is a professional networking, collaboration and communication platform for active and retired first responders, emergency response professionals, government employees and others working in homeland security and preparedness. Created by the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), this vetted community focuses on emergency preparedness, response, recovery and other homeland security topics and issues."

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
