  1. 1. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level <ul><li>Objectives… </li></ul><ul><li>Identify current means of communications, including commercial means and how current commercial providers will fit into disaster response communications. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify communications needs as they relate to agency functions and disaster response- specifically, hurricane response. </li></ul><ul><li>Construct ICS 217A for involved agencies. </li></ul><ul><li>Construct communications plan (eventual end product). </li></ul>
  2. 2. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level <ul><li>Assumptions… </li></ul><ul><li>Communications will be mostly compartmentalized and point-to-point: team member to team member, team to team and specific person/position to specific person/position. </li></ul><ul><li>Even if it were a goal, everyone would not always be able to talk to everyone. </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone really doesn’t need to talk to everyone. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level <ul><li>Identify what resources are needed and available (either immediately or after some time/process/steps) </li></ul><ul><li>Identify what those resources currently use to communicate. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify which specific resources need to communicate with other specific resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Make assumptions about what of the above you will or not be able to use in a disaster response- our case today, a hurricane response. These assumptions also feed your COOP/DR planning. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Base /Area Command- IMT
  5. 5. Base /Area Command- IMT
  6. 17. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level <ul><li>Third Step… </li></ul><ul><li>Construct a matrix that identifies commonalties in means of communication. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify gaps that need to be filled. </li></ul><ul><li>Fill in gaps with mutual aid means (example: NIFOG), equipment or some other solution. </li></ul>
  7. 19. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level <ul><li>Fourth Step… </li></ul><ul><li>Construct ICS 205 for incident to use as basis of communications plan. </li></ul>
  8. 22. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level Summary: <ul><li>A lot of our disaster communications at the state level will be dependent on: </li></ul><ul><li>SouthernLINC </li></ul><ul><li>Use of the NIFOG for Land Mobile Radio communications interoperability </li></ul><ul><li>Compartmentalized communications capability (within groups/group-to-group/point-to-point/individual-to-individual) </li></ul><ul><li>Satellite for point-to-point/PSTN interface </li></ul>
  9. 23. Hurricane Communications Planning Process- State Level Summary: <ul><li>Sometimes interoperable communications does not consist of trying to use technology to ‘patch’ disparate systems together, but rather trying to ensure point-to-point information flow while maintaining ‘within group/function’ communications ability and integrity. </li></ul><ul><li>On large-scale operations expect communications to be more compartmentalized and point-to-point oriented. </li></ul>
  10. 24. NIFOG National Interoperability Field Operations Guide U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office of Emergency Communications Version 1.3 May 2009
  11. 25. NIFOG Contents <ul><li>REGULATIONS AND GUIDELINES FOR NATIONAL INTEROPERABILITY </li></ul><ul><li>INTEROPERABILITY CHANNELS </li></ul><ul><li>COMMON COMMUNICATIONS REFERENCES </li></ul><ul><li>COMMONLY USED FREQUENCIES </li></ul>
  12. 26. NIFOG Contents <ul><li>Identifies available radio frequencies for federal and non-federal responders to use for mutual aid on: </li></ul><ul><li>VHF </li></ul><ul><li>UHF </li></ul><ul><li>700 MHz </li></ul><ul><li>800 MHz </li></ul><ul><li>including use in specific functions such as aviation, marine and SAR. </li></ul>
  13. 27. NIFOG Use <ul><li>Most agencies will use the NIFOG to help identify radio frequencies that they will use to talk to one another. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to get these frequencies programmed into your radio BEFORE a disaster. </li></ul>
  14. 28. NIFOG <ul><li>To get a copy: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.ncdhhs.gov/dhsr/EMS/pdf/NIFOG.pdf (download) </li></ul><ul><li>Email DHS Office if Emergency Communications to request spiral-bound pocket editions: [email_address] </li></ul>
  15. 29. Hurricane Communications Planning Process <ul><li>Questions? </li></ul><ul><li>Wayne Smith </li></ul><ul><li>GEMA </li></ul><ul><li>ESF- 2: Communications </li></ul><ul><li>404-635-4208 </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>
