SAFECOM Nationwide Survey


The SAFECOM Nationwide Survey (SNS) is a nationwide data collection effort to obtain actionable and critical data that drives our nation’s emergency communication policies, programs, and funding. SAFECOM will leverage the collected data to identify gaps and inform development of the program’s strategic priorities and inform the Nationwide Communication Baseline Assessment (NCBA) developed by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency .

About the SAFECOM Nationwide Survey (SNS)

In accordance with the Homeland Security Act of 2002, as amended (6 U.S.C. § 573(a)), Congress directs CISA to assess federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments emergency communications every five years. The data collected from the SAFECOM Nationwide Survey will be utilized to conduct the NCBA. The assessment focuses on:

  • Analyzing the current state of emergency communications capabilities;
  • Identifying nationwide gaps; and
  • Measuring the evolution of emergency communications since the last iteration of the SNS
