Mutualink National Vision White Paper

Achieving Interoperability Within and Among Federal, State and Local Agencies and Private Non-Government Organizations

Despite a decade of significant investment and concerted efforts, a pervasive, national interoperable communications solution for emergency response has remained a bridge too far with, at best, small pockets among a few select agencies. Emergency events such as the World Trade Center attacks, the Sandy Hook School shootings, Hurricane Katrina, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Aurora CO movie theater shootings and host of other natural, accidental and man-made incidents exposed and will continue to expose the persistent and prevailing problem of a lack of effective, coordinated communications between first responders and other emergency support and critical infrastructure organizations that are critical to responding to, mitigating and recovering from disasters. Perhaps we have been trying to solve the wrong problem, or at least we have been trying to solve it the wrong way.
