Sharing Information At All Levels of Government Involved In Homeland Security Local-State-Federal Governmental Agencies (National Capital Region) Emergency Responders Appointed & Elected Officials Local Government Employees and ESF Support Agencies Emergency Partners Business & Industry Citizens & Community Groups Media (Joint Information Cnt)
Current Methods of Sharing Information Between Governmental Agencies Throughout NCR NAWAS (Hardwired Conferencing System) RICCS (Wireless Notification System) SAT Phones (Satellite Based Radio & Telephone System) 800 MHz Emergency Radio System (For Fire & Law Enforcement) Computerized Databases Commercial Telephones (Landlines/Cell phones/Direct Connect)
Intra/Inter Governmental Communication Interoperability Issues Not All Governmental Agencies Have Connectivity Security Clearances & Security Barriers Affordability Internet-INET NVR Jurisdictional Restrictions Lack of Vision –Keeping Pace With Technology Growth
Why Does It Work ??? Renewed Emphasis on Emergency Management & Homeland Security Strong Commitment & Cooperation From All Levels of Government To “Make It Work” NCR Frame of References Regional Joint Planning, Training & Exercises Utilization of Emergency Operations Centers & NIMS UASI Regional Grant Funding Initiative Expectations of Public & Elected Officials New Presidential Directive
Presidential Directive (EO 13356)
Fairfax County’s Interoperability Enhancements New Alternate EOC –Video Teleconferencing –EMNet to Media –Live Video Feed To TV 16 –Redundant 800 MHz & Computer Aid Dispatch System –Redundant Telephone System (Land & Cell) New EOC Information Management Software Watch Center Staffed 24/7 Wireless Alert & Notification System (RICCS/EAN/CEAN)
Fairfax County’s Interoperability Future Enhancements New Public Safety Transportation Operations Center County Wide Area Fiber Network (INET) New Public Safety IT Architect Employed New Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) Link EOC Information Management Software Visits to EOCs in US and Canada Lt Governor Kaine Tours Fairfax County Technology Center. & AEOC
New Regional IT Committees Lead NCR Interoperability Efforts GOALS Provides a secure, private technology infrastructure required to facilitate interoperability for voice, data and video communication for emergency support functions across the region Interconnects EOCs, PSAPs, and government offices that participate in decision making, incident management and response Assures a standards and services based information exchange architecture - compliant with emerging Department of Homeland Security data exchange standards - that is used for any required systems and applications of ESFs used for on-line collaboration and regional coordinated response ESF2 Future Enhancements to Regional Interoperability Communications Infrastructure
Initiative Outcomes An ubiquitous standard, regional framework and protocol for how ESFs integrate operations and supporting systems, regardless of any participating entity’s specific system or application Interconnect EOCs and PSCCs and other office locations for private voice communication and sharing data between EOC and CAD systems Assures communications capability and capacity is secure and available Enables: CAD to CAD; integrated ‘EOC’/incident tracking; voice and video teleconferencing; extended enterprise and remote access; and full communications capability to responders at any incident scene ESF2 Interoperability Communications Infrastructure ESF2 Future Enhancements to Regional Interoperability Communications Infrastructure
Enables CAD to CAD Interoperability integrated ‘EOC’/incident tracking voice and video teleconferencing extended enterprise and remote access full communications capability to responders at any incident scene ESF2 Interoperability Communications Infrastructure ESF2 Future Enhancements to Regional Interoperability Communications Infrastructure
Advantages Baseline communications infrastructures to be interconnected Planning and design work substantially underway Competencies and experience already exist in several NRC jurisdictions in development of cross governmental boundaries data exchange Project endorsement and collaboration established with Emergency Managers & Public Safety responders Protects jurisdictions current investments and efficiencies in embedded applications Sustainable ESF2 Interoperability Communications Infrastructure ESF2 Future Enhancements to Regional Interoperability Communications Infrastructure
