First Responders Communication Interoperability Summit

14 July, 2014 - 16 July, 2014, Washington, DC, United States

First responders need reliable, accurate information to decide the best course of action during an incident—and they need it quickly. In this age of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, this data can literally be at their fingertips.

First Responders Communication Interoperability will take an in depth look at the current and upcoming advances in technology, training, and strategy for all agencies and divisions, both civil and military, involved in disaster and emergency response. Join us for hands on training workshops as well as solution oriented discussion on the current national and state level preparedness measures, their current capability gaps, and the necessary procurements for its future success. 

Our First Responders Communication Interoperability will bring together high profile speakers from FEMA, NTIA, NCTC, JTTF, DHS, DOJ and more to discuss in depth discussions on communication interoperability preparedness. Network with the top decision makers and policy creators of all major government and military agencies involved in the national emergency and disaster preparedness sector.
