Grants for Emergency Response Technology
For emergency response agencies, technology like the AccuRad™ personal radiation detector is essential for effective security against radiological threats. If you need help with funding, there are numerous grants available for acquiring this technology and providing the necessary training. Here are just some of the applicable grants that can help.
Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP)
The HSGP consists of three grants meant to provide funding to equip emergency responders and law enforcement with the tools necessary to prevent, mitigate, respond to, and protect against terrorist threats. These grants are specifically meant to aid in creating State Homeland Security Strategies, supporting preparedness in high-threat areas, and enhancing security along U.S. land and water borders.

Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG)
The EMPG Program focuses on the specific needs for a region or state. Emergency response organizations in high-risk areas such as large cities and busy transportation hubs can use EMPG funds to create thorough training programs and acquire detection equipment, including PRDs.

Transit Security Grant Program (TSGP)
This grant program provides funding for public transportation security, including buses, ferries, and railways. Public transit is at risk both as a target and as a means of transporting illicit material, and PRDs are crucial for security in situations like these. The TSGP seeks to help law enforcement in planning for emergencies, implementing proper training and threat exercises, and acquiring the best equipment for the job.
