The National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG) is a technical reference designed to support incident communications. This version marks the 14th year for the NIFOG. The NIFOG is updated on a regular basis and is a compilation of communication references and information that have been recommended by public safety practitioners across the country. Due to the increasing technical and regulatory nature of incident communications and information technology, it is, and will remain a work in progress. New content in 2.0 includes references on Information Technology, Emergency Wireless Carrier Services, Interference Management, Encryption, and Cybersecurity.
If you are not familiar with interoperability and mutual aid communications, start with the “How to Use the National Interoperability Field Operations Guide” section and recommend the reader become familiar with the tools available in this guide.
