Emergency Communications Plans

In the event of a major disaster event, when all local communications will likely be temporarily disabled, how do you plan on communicating with first responders, or with the outside world for resources, or with the impacted residents? DSI's Emergency Communications Plans analyzes these issues to provide a comprehensive strategy for pre- and post- event communications. Each Communications Plan considers the following major topics:

  • Identification of all current jurisdiction communication assets
  • State Communication Assets
  • Communications Equipment Caches
  • Emergency Operations Center Communications capabilities
  • Mobile Command Vehicle Capabilities
  • Interoperability Issues
  • Special Event Communications
  • Back-up strategies
  • Frequency identification

Having an Emergency Communications Plan in place before an event causes a major disruption in your current capabilities is a prudent step on your part to ensure nothing slows down the response and recovery to the event.
