R2 Connect

The R2 Network is a free-to-use, self-sustaining platform that serves the entire public safety community. It brings the industry together for a common goal – to support innovators and agencies in empowering first responders with the resources they need to stay safe while protecting their communities.

Built by industry experts, this platform enables the creation of a strategic nationwide network of organizations working to address disaster response and resiliency (R2) challenges with transformative technologies.

As part of the Accelerate R2 Network Challenge, this initiative is supported by the Economic Development Administration, in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Public Safety Communications Research division and the First Responder Network Authority.
