PSCR Webinar - Voices of First Responders: PSCR's Survey Analyzer Tool in Action

Promotional image reading, "Register Today. Voices of First Responders: PSCR's Survey Analyzer Tool in Action. Thursday, January 27. 11am-12pm MT

This January, NIST's Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division will host a webinar featuring the new Survey Analyzer Tool. NIST PSCR conducted a series of in-depth interviews with approximately 200 first responders about their views on communication technology. These interviews informed a nationwide, large-scale survey completed by over 7,000 first responders. PSCR’s Usability Team recently developed a Survey Analyzer tool to create interactive graphs and tables to display these survey results and export visualizations.

In this webinar, Yee-Yin Choong, Shanée Dawkins, and Kerrianne Buchanan will discuss the large-scale survey and in-depth interviews that PSCR conducted with first responders across the U.S. about their communications technology use. Additionally, they will demo the Survey Analyzer Tool. Read more about the speakers below, and register now!
