Homeland Security Research



Natural or manmade disasters can result in pollution that threatens human health, the environment and our economy. The United States is regularly affected by such disasters. Communities must be resilient to such catastrophes. Resilience requires scientific information to support good decisions. EPA's Homeland Security Research Program provides science and technology needed to rapidly and effectively respond to environmental catastrophes.
