The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) supports and promotes communications capabilities used by emergency responders and government officials across the country. In its efforts to advance interoperability, CISA develops the National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP), which is the Nation’s strategic plan that establishes goals, objectives, and actions to enhance and improve interoperable and operable emergency communications. The 2014 NECP recognizes the broader nature of emergency communications, which includes interoperable communications for emergency medical personnel.


In addition to the five elements of the Interoperability Continuum, planning is a major factor for interoperable communications. The documents in this section include resources about the 2014 National Emergency Communications Plan, education and outreach programs, and maintaining awareness of the specific issues and barriers that affect interoperability communications.
