The Information Sharing Assessment Tool (ISAT) is an easy-to-use tool for public safety officials and first responders from across the nation to identify their own information sharing capabilities and gaps. The ISAT aims to empower communities to develop an action plan to:
- Address their most pressing information-sharing gaps;
- Publicize their progress and achievements; and
- Facilitate inter-agency and cross-discipline information sharing discussions among partners
In as little as 20 minutes, users can complete the ISAT with an optional scenario focused on an active shooter or severe weather event to pinpoint their most pressing information sharing barriers and validate critical capabilities. Users can now click through optional, expanded sections with more specific questions that dive deeper into information sharing issues. The ISAT was developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) with the guidance of local, state, and federal public safety practitioners. The ISAT is a tool for first responders, developed by first responders.
