Next Generation First Responder (NGFR) Apex Program

The Next Generation First Responder (NGFR) Apex program is developing tools that first responders need to save lives and protect property while staying safe. NGFR is designing new capabilities, adapting existing technology and working to stimulate private sector innovation to ensure the next generation of first responders is protected, connected and fully aware.

NGFR is a five-year program that serves as a launching point for a 20-year strategic initiative by the DHS Science and Technology Directorate to envision what the responder of the future will look like, what technology they will use, how they will communicate during emergencies, and how they will integrate with the communities they serve.
