In the United States, over 10,000 jurisdictions, from townships and cities to counties and states, employ public safety personnel to respond to emergency situations. These first responders treat life-threatening injuries, keep natural disasters at bay, and combat terrorism. To perform these duties, emergency responders must undergo unique training, utilize specialized equipment, and access a variety of information systems. The NCCoE's Public Safety and First Responder (PSFR) program is working with the first responder community to implement standards-based solutions to make public safety systems resilient against attack and to ensure immediate access to critical assets during incident response.
