PSCR Search Tool: First Responder Quotes
Use this tool to search over 20,000 first responder quotes from nationwide interviews with first responders. These quotes, accessed via the PSCR Search Tool: First Responder Quotes, can be freely used to influence the design and development of communication technology in the public safety domain. Any quotes used in published materials should properly attribute this tool as well as the NISTIR 8216 and NISTIR 8245 reports, the first volumes in the series of documents reporting on the interview data.

The PSCR Public Safety Enhanced User Interface R&D Roadmap is the third of several technology roadmaps that PSCR has developed over the past several years to better inform the investment decisions of R&D organizations supporting the public safety community. This document aims to assist in planning for public safety communications research and optimize the allocation of the $300 million apportioned to NIST from the AWS-3 spectrum auction, which concluded in January 2015. This report intends to outline the current state of user interface technologies, forecast the evolution of user interface capabilities and gaps, and identify potential R&D opportunities that would improve public safety’s use of enhanced user interface technologies within operational settings. Upon completion of this roadmap, PSCR intends to identify R&D project ideas that pose the greatest operational benefit to public safety. These opportunities may be considered for inclusion in PSCR’s Innovation Accelerator program, drives R&D through prize challenges, grants, and/or cooperative agreements. Given the scope of technology under consideration and level of effort required to deliver enhanced user interface technologies to public safety, PSCR hopes that these findings and recommendations will educate stakeholders across all levels of government, industry, and academia.
