The current National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP) suggests the development of best practices to encourage active network sharing and regionalization of shared services. But what does that look like in practice? Join representatives from the U.S. Departments of Justice, Interior, Homeland Security and the Yuma County, Arizona, Regional Communications Systems as they discuss ongoing initiatives to build interconnected, interoperable networks among public safety agencies at all levels. Learn more about CISA's Shared Communication Systems and Infrastructure (SCSI) approach that gleans lessons learned from these activities and documents the benefits of such initiatives. Panelists will discuss how these efforts approach governance, establish common policies, share resources, and address cybersecurity. They will also discuss lessons learned from specific projects, including examples of Memorandum of Understanding and successful coordination of federal, tribal, territorial, state, and local agencies.
