DHS Feedback Request: Proposed NECP Updates

Feedback Request:  Proposed National Emergency Communications Plan Updates

Make an impact on national emergency communications planning!

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is seeking feedback on proposed updates to the National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP) the Nation's strategic plan to improve emergency communications. Informed by last year's SAFECOM Nationwide Survey, the NECP provides guidance to those that plan for, coordinate, invest in, and use communications to support response and recovery operations. This includes traditional emergency responder disciplines (e.g., law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, dispatch) and other entities that share information during emergencies, such as medical facilities, utilities, nongovernmental organizations, as well as the media and private citizens.

To prepare stakeholders for a rapidly evolving emergency communications landscape, CISA is leading a national effort to update the NECP (last published in 2014). Proposed updates reflect the expanding ecosystem of people, technologies, and functions involved in supporting emergency communications to aid public safety entities with addressing today's challenges while also planning for future advancements.

To provide comments on the updated NECP, complete the feedback form on the DHS website and submit it to by March 22, 2019.

We appreciate your assistance and contributions in updating the NECP. If you have any questions, please direct them to
