First and Field Responders Subcommittee (FFRSC)
The First and Field Responders Working Group was formed at the May 2009 Annual Meeting and had its first teleconference in October 2009. First and field responders recognized the vast differences in response methods and systems across the DOE complex and concluded that the formation of a working group of responders would be of mutual benefit. More consistent emergency response across the complex can be provided by sharing information such as:
- Response methodologies
- Current and evolving technologies
- Communication and training methods
- Preplanning and mutual-aid systems
- Policies and procedures
The group achieved subcommittee status at the May 2012 Annual Meeting and is now the First and Field Responders Subcommittee (FFRSC).
