Description
 
The objective of this report was to determine whether Dept. of Defense (DoD) communications equipment was available, maintained, staffed, and ready for use to ensure interoperability during a domestic emergency. National Guard (NG) personnel are the military first responders for most domestic emergencies. The National Guard Bureau (NGB) fielded 97 Joint Incident Site Communications Capability systems (JISCCs) to NG units across 54 states, territories, and Wash., D.C. to address the lack of interoperable communications capabilities identified after the September 11th terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina. NG units used the JISCC to communicate with first responders and Federal and state agencies through high-frequency radio, telephone, video, and satellite. The report found that NGB officials did not always ensure that interoperable communications equipment was available, maintained, staffed, or ready for use during a domestic emergency. Includes recommendations. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
