The ability to maintain reliable voice and data communications is critical for public safety agencies to offer life-saving and protective services. By establishing resiliency measures, public safety communications can better withstand potential service disruptions that may interfere with protecting the community.
Many resources are available to assist public safety agencies with communications resilience, but it can be hard to keep up with the abundance of rapidly evolving information. The CISA's Public Safety Communications and Cyber Resiliency Toolkit provides a central location for these resources.
The toolkit uses an interactive graphic to intuitively index resources that will help you:
- Identify emergent trends and issues.
- Consolidate resources.
- Evaluate current resiliency capabilities.
- Identify ways to improve resiliency.
- Develop plans for mitigating the effects of potential threats to communications resilience.
Toolkit resources discuss methods that may disrupt communications and offer guidance to improve resilience against these potential threats. Resources are available for essential emergency communications infrastructure such as alert and warning systems, unmanned aircraft systems, local area networks and next generation 911 services.
