Deltek & iCERT Seminar: Strategic Resourcing and Coordination for Emergency Communications
Deltek Event Details

Join Deltek, The Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT), and the Department of Homeland Security for a briefing on strategic resourcing and coordination for emergency communications, featuring Chris Macintosh-Virginia Interoperability Coordinator.

Join Deltek, iCERT, and DHS in a half-day session focused strictly on emergency communications and the issues and challenges facing state and local public safety agencies. With the FCC’s narrowbanding deadline coming to a close and with the distinct need to plan for elements of network convergence regarding NG911 and public safety broadband, emergency response agencies are moving quickly to ensure proper resourcing and coordination during disasters of all magnitudes. Hear from members of DHS and FEMA on what is needed in order to properly plan, develop, and implement mission critical communication capabilities for first responders.

    During this briefing the following topics will be addressed:
  • Communication in a world driven by social media
  • Public safety mandates and deadlines
  • Effective resourcing through budgeting, procurement, and implementation

Hosted by Verizon.
