NECP Webinar: Planning for Emerging Communications Technologies

Acquisition is only one piece of the planning required to implement new technologies, as the National Emergency Communications Plan recommends.

Innovative technologies are rapidly evolving the way we share information. In emergencies, we are able to leverage groundbreaking emergency communications advancements to achieve faster, safer, and overall more efficient outcomes. However, as technology evolves, public safety organizations must adapt in an increasingly complex environment to realize the benefits of these emerging communications capabilities.

The SAFECOM Nationwide Survey (SNS) showed that public safety organizations encounter significant challenges in adopting new technologies and integrating them into operations. Acquisition is only one piece of the planning required to implement new technologies – as the National Emergency Communications Plan recommends – addressing the governance, standard operating procedures, and training and exercises to support advanced technologies is critical to success.

  • Planning and best practices for the integration of new technologies
