Identifying Critical Initiatives for Statewide Interoperability in Texas

1. We started with the

Texas Homeland Security Strategy and the

Texas Interoperable Communications Plan

as a foundation.

8. The final draft of SCIP is submitted to the Governor for approval. Then, after approval by the

Dept. of Homeland Security the grant programs open.

2.Then we used the SAFECOM Interoperability Continuum as a guide and focused on the

5 elements of interoperability:

Governance – Standard Operating Procedures Technology - Training / Exercises - Usage,

to ask emergency practitioners what problems they have talking to each other in critical situations,

7. The Critical Initiatives and Goals are incorporated into the SCIP for Implementation

6. Next is the Statewide Strategic Planning Session where the Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan Goals are confirmed and the Critical Initiatives are discussed and prioritized for the SCIP. Participants are to comment on and validate the information, re-insert comments left out during the process and prioritize the result.

3. We met with Federal, State and Local Elected Officials to seek their support.

4. Next, 27 Focus Group Sessions (FGS) were scheduled, 25submitted reports where the emergency practitioners prioritized their communications concerns into “hot topics” and each FGS sent

5 “hot topics” forward.

5. Over 100 “hot topics” were converted into “Critical Initiatives”. Each “Critical Initiative” can be traced back to one or more “hot topics” and each “hot topic” is addressed by a “Critical Initiative”
