The National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC) is pleased to announce the publication of the first three videos in a NCSWIC Video Series, which serves to promote the roles, duties, and daily operations of the Statewide Interoperability Coordinator (SWIC) and the importance of the many facets of emergency communications and interoperability. 

In the “What is a SWIC” video, members of NCSWIC discuss how they support interoperability and emergency response and communications, their role as key partners for state and federal agencies, and how they work at the intersection of policy and technology. The “What are Emergency Communications” video explains emergency communications systems, their importance to first responders, and why they are critical to protecting the nation. The third video, “What is Interoperability”, highlights the complexity of communicating across different technologies and the importance of being able to work together regardless of agency, government level, or hazard.
