National Emergency Communications Plan (Video 2/2)

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 09:57

The National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP) is designed to address gaps and determine solutions so that emergency response personnel at all levels of government and across all disciplines can communicate as needed, on demand, and as authorized. The National Emergency Communications Plan is the nation’s first strategic plan to improve emergency response communications, and complements overarching homeland security and emergency communications legislation, strategies and initiatives.

 

In this video, OEC Director Chris Essid, Fire Chief Charles Werner (Charlottesville, Virginia) and Deputy Chief of Police Eddie Reyes (Alexandria, Virginia) discuss the NECP update and the introduction of next-generation technologies into emergency communications.
