DHS’s First Responder Group Awards Grant to VACCINE

December 4, 2017

With the funds provided by the Department of Homeland Security’s First Responder Group grant, the Purdue University based team will scale SMART for deployment and accessibility to every first responder and emergency manager in the United States.  This endeavor is led by Professor David Ebert and Davista Technologies. 

In addition, Dr Louis Ngamassi, a VACCINE partner at Prairie View A & M University, will support Purdue’s efforts, by developing classroom material for social media analytics and disaster management.  Dr. Ngamassi is also the recipient of the DHS Scientific Leadership Award.

VACCINE, with partnerships with FEMA, DHS, and the Emergency Management Higher Education Program community, continues to integrate SMART as an integral tool for first responders
