Project Responder 3 used facilitated discussions with responders throughout the United States to identify existing response capability gap, which were then categorized into nine domains, including “Responder Health, Safety, and Performance.” Discussion revealed three abilities that are critical to responders: the ability for them to obtain real-time status updates about their families during disaster response; the ability to measure an individual’s resilience to determine whether s/he will perform effectively under stress; and the ability to monitor, in real time, the physical and mental status of responders during an incident.
