ABSTRACT

Emergency Communications Governance Guide for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Officials (December 2018)   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), in coordination with SAFECOM and the National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC), presents the '2018 Governance Guide for State, Local,Tribal, and Territorial Emergency Communications Officials' (Governance Guide). Since the 2015 release of the Governance Guide, CISA conducted the SAFECOM Nationwide Survey to collect data on existing public safety communications capabilities and gaps. The survey found strong leadership and governance structures are improving emergency communications planning, coordination, and decision-making. However, the findings also recognized continued challenges involving new entities beyond traditional responders, as well as integrating emerging technologies into public safety communications systems."
