Sign up for Free Emergency Management and Response Information from DHS

Sep 17, 2010

The Emergency Management and Response - Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EMR-ISAC) is offering NAEMT members a no-cost subscription to receive EMR-ISAC information that has the potential to affect emergency plans and operations.

EMR-ISAC provides no-cost information on critical infrastructure protection (CIP), resilience, threats and vulnerabilities to the leaders and operators of the nation’s Emergency Services Sector (ESS). It aims to assist EMS and related disciplines in making informed decisions regarding survivability and continuity of operations before, during and after an all-hazards event. Its mission is to collect, analyze and disseminate consequential CIP and resilience information having applicability to ESS organizations.

You can sign up for the following information services:

• INFOGRAMs: Issued weekly, these contain four very short articles about the protection of the critical infrastructures of communities and their emergency responders.
• CIP Bulletins: Published as needed, these contain timely, consequential homeland security information affecting the CIP of emergency response agencies.

ESS personnel in department or agency leadership positions also can receive the CIP (For Official Use Only) Notices. These documents are archived in a DHS secure portal and can be accessed by those whose identity and position have been appropriately validated. CIP (FOUO) Notices contain emergent, actionable information regarding threats and vulnerabilities to support effective advanced prevention, protection and mitigation activities.

If you're interested in receiving a subscription, contact the EMR-ISAC at emr-isac@dhs.gov. Also, view the brochure and fact sheet on EMR-ISAC.
