Interoperability Continuum [infographic]   [open pdf - 158KB]

"The Interoperability Continuum is designed to help the public safety community and local, tribal, state, and federal policy makers address critical elements for success as they plan and implement interoperability solutions. These elements include governance, standard operating procedures, technology, training/exercises, and usage of interoperable communications. The Interoperability Continuum was developed in accordance with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology (S&T) Directorates Office for Interoperability and Compatibility's SAFECOM program's locally driven philosophy and its practical experience in working with local governments across the nation. This tool was established to depict the core facets of interoperability according to the stated needs and challenges of the public safety community and will aid public safety practitioners and policy makers in their short- and long-term interoperability efforts."
