CISA Releases NECP Spotlight: Enhancing Rural Emergency Communications Capabilities

Unlike major urban centers, rural areas face unique challenges associated with emergency medical response. Emergency communications personnel in rural communities require the appropriate training and expertise for medical and non-medical response. Recognizing these challenges, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) established the Rural Emergency Medical Communications Demonstration Project (REMCDP) to help rural communities examine barriers and identify solutions that help improve the delivery of rural medical care.

Last week, CISA released an update to the National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP), the Nation’s strategic plan to strengthen and enhance emergency communications capabilities. The NECP provides guidance to those that plan for, coordinate, maintain, invest in, and use operable and interoperable communications to support public safety operations.
