The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has announced the release of the SAFECOM Succession Planning Resources for Public Safety Communications Toolkit, which is intended to help retain communications skillsets and mitigate the loss of communications personnel. This document provides helpful templates to document and track communications systems and training. Further, this toolkit recommends the creation of a collateral duty, titled the “public safety communications coordinator,” to liaise between operational and governance personnel and train in all aspects of the public safety communications ecosystem. Access the toolkit at CISA.
This resource is posted to CISA’s SAFECOM webpage, where visitors can access other planning resources for effective public safety communications.
