Newswise — The SAFETY Act is intended to provide critical incentives for the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies by providing liability protections for sellers of "qualified anti-terrorism technologies." Our aim is to ensure the possessors of such anti-terrorism technologies are not deterred by the threat of liability from developing and commercializing products and technologies that could save lives in the event of a terrorist attack.

Join the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and Representatives from the Office of SAFETY Act Implementation (OSAI) for a Facebook Town Hall at 1 p.m. April 26, 2016 to answer your questions about the risk mitigation protections provided by the SAFETY Act program.

Hear the answers straight from our SAFETY Act team to the following questions and more:•How does S&T provide liability protections for sellers of “qualified anti-terrorism technologies”?•What kind of protections and benefits are there for small and large businesses through the SAFETY Act?•How can new applicants submit applications? How can my company work with S&T?

The town hall will be held online from 1 to 2 p.m. EDT, but the conversation won’t stop when we sign off! If you have questions, we’ll provide the answers you need to continue the conversation. You can also follow along at @dhsscitech on Twitter and even ask a question using #SciTechTownhall!

Make sure you do not miss this exciting opportunity to connect with S&T to find out how we are helping to make technologies safer, and connecting with small businesses!
