Assessing the Nation’s Emergency Communications Capabilities

The SAFECOM Nationwide Survey (SNS) is now live and will remain open through July 21, 2023, and your participation impacts future emergency communications decisions! The SNS is the means to have your organization’s voice heard. The SNS supplies essential data on emergency communications capability gaps that can be used to advocate for funding, establish priorities, and improve operations. Participation by public safety organizations helps to highlight those advancements that will secure resilient operable and interoperable communications in an ever-evolving environment.  

The SNS measures progress made while identifying gaps in emergency communications and defining the range for new capabilities. Both SAFECOM and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourage public safety organizations at the federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial levels of government to participate in the survey, have their voices heard, and help shape the future of emergency communications.
