PACE delegates are invited to a workshop hosted by Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Centre for Security Science (CSS). The session will provide an overview of DRDC’s CSS and engage the audience in identifying paramedic specific science and technology gaps and develop challenge statements to articulate those gaps.
Defence Research and Development Canada is an agency of the Department of National Defence whose purpose is to provide government departments as well as public safety communities with knowledge and technology.
Emergency Responder Safety and Operational Effectiveness is an identified priority for DRDC aimed at developing capabilities that help police, firefighters, paramedics and specialized responders to conduct operations safely and effectively. This priority focuses on improvements to detection and decontamination technologies, forensic techniques, personal protective equipment, explosives countermeasures, and associated standards and processes.
