Homeland Security Research


EPA's Homeland Security Research Program provides science and technology needed to effectively respond to, and recover from, natural or manmade disasters. Natural disasters and manmade disasters, whether intentinal or unintentional,  can result in pollution that threatens human health, the environment and our economy.  Communities must be resilient to such catastrophes. Resilience requires scientific information to support good decisions.
