The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) was invited to share information about the importance of the recently released Emergency Communications Governance Guide for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Officials (SLTT Governance Guide) during the United South Eastern Tribes (USET) Impact Week.
This document is updated annually to provide current information on emergency communications policies, eligible costs, best practices, and technical standards for state, local, tribal, and territorial grant recipients investing federal funds in emergency communications projects.
CISA has developed The Internet of Things: Impact on Public Safety Communications white paper to enhance the community’s understanding of how to successfully harness IoT in the public safety context.
Technology is a critical tool for improving interoperability that should meet the needs of practitioners on the front lines and should address regional needs, existing infrastructure, cost versus benefits, and sustainability. The resources below provide 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and Smart Cities examples of the technology currently used in the public safety environment.
CISA’s “An Extraordinary Day” video highlights mutual aid successes in the May 2, 2018, Fairfax County, VA, multiple fires incident.
Highlights from CISA at IWCE 2019: Day Three include "Application Interoperability- The Next Holy Grail".
Highlights from Day One at IWCE include "P25 for the Future: New Products, Applications, Interoperability, and Security" and "COML Update: Managing Information at the Incident."
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will be at the 2019 International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, from March 4 to 8.
