CRS REPORT Prepared for Members and Committees of Congress
This report provides an overview of grant programs at the U.S. Department of Education (ED), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that provide direct or indirect funding for school and campus safety and security initiatives. The report also provides an overview of programs and initiatives administered by these departments that support school safety and security efforts in other ways,such as through data collection and reporting and technical assistance.
In addition, the federal government operates initiatives that support the efforts of state and local governments to secure schools. For example, the Federal Commission on School Safety was formed in 2018 to make policy recommendations on a range of school safety and security issues. As another example, the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council provides advice and recommendations to the DHS Secretary and departmental senior leadership on matters related to homeland security and the academic community.
As reported by Wildfire Today, the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) approved new symbology for the 2021 fire season. New symbols were developed by the NWCG Data Management Committee and are now part of the Incident Command System Standards for Geospatial Operations.
