The First Responder Partnership Initiative (FRPI) will identify "first responders with a new smart card credentialing effort" designed "to enhance cooperation and efficiency between state and local first responders and their federal counterparts." [1]

The "interoperable technology" is expected "to support mutual aide across jurisdictional lines." It "will identify first responders and their qualification(s) at the site of an incident, so they may move rapidly into, out of, and within an area in a trusted and secure manner." [2]

First tested in the National Capital Region (NCR) in 2005, the "card will be recognized across all NCR federal, state, and local multi-jurisdictions." [3]
