Definition Edit

Emergency communications is

the ability of emergency responders to exchange information via data, voice, and video as authorized, to complete their missions.[1]

Overview Edit

Emergency communications consists of three primary elements:

  1. Operability — The ability of emergency responders to establish and sustain communications in support of mission operations.
  2. Interoperability — The ability of emergency responders to communicate among jurisdictions, disciplines, and levels of government, using a variety of frequency bands, as needed and as authorized. System operability is required for system interoperability.
  3. Continuity of Communications — The ability of emergency response agencies to maintain communications in the event of damage to or destruction of the primary infrastructure.
