Federal Communications Commission's Public Safety & Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB)
The FCC's Public Safety & Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) officially began operations on Monday, September 25, 2006. PSHSB is responsible for developing, recommending, and administering the agency's policies pertaining to public safety communications issues. These policies include 9-1-1 and E9-1-1; operability and interoperability of public safety communications; communications infrastructure protection and disaster response; and network security and reliability. PSHSB also serves as a clearinghouse for public safety communications information and takes the lead on emergency response issues. A primary goal of PSHSB is to support and advance initiatives that further strengthen and enhance the security and reliability of the nation's communications infrastructure and public safety and emergency response capabilities that will better enable the FCC to assist the public, first responders, law enforcement, hospitals, the communications industry and all levels of government in the event of a natural disaster, pandemic or terrorist attack. brochure

Federal Emergency Management Agency
http://www.fema.gov/  

  • The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Disaster Management (DM) E-Government Initiative strives to meet the Nation’s need for better emergency communications by stressing information sharing and enhanced services for emergency management community. For general information, see The Disaster Management Program Web site.
  • The FEMA Disaster Management Program Office hosts monthly Online Special Interest Group (SIG) presentations geared toward emergency management practitioners and information technology developers. To participate in the DM-Open Platform for Emergency Networks (DM-OPEN) or the Disaster Management Interoperability Services (DMIS) SIGs subscribe to our mailing list at SIG Notification.
  • NIMS Guideline for the Credentialing of Personnel (09/30/11) This document provides guidance on credentialing for Federal, State, tribal, and local personnel, as well as for voluntary and not-for-profit response organizations and persons affiliated with critical infrastructure (also referred to as “affiliation access”). The guideline is of particular interest to our critical infrastructure partners, we believe, because it contains recommended processes for State and local officials to use to prioritize access to restricted areas following disasters or emergencies. This can help expedite repair and restoration of critical infrastructure facilities and services. The document was developed with the participation of stakeholders from key critical infrastructure sectors, and builds on the doctrine established in NIMS Guide 0002 National Credentialing Definition and Criteria, dated March 27, 2007. It addresses the need to establish legitimacy through proof of identity, qualification/affiliation, and authorization to deploy for the full spectrum of responders.
