SIEC - State Interoperability Executive Committee


 

 

 

Our emergency responders cannot always talk to each other during crisis situations. The State Interoperability Executive Committee (SIEC) was formed by legislative mandate in 2003 and works to ensure:

All emergency responders, across all levels of government and across all jurisdictions can talk to each other and share data:

(1) on demand,
(2) in real-time,
(3) as needed, and
(4) as authorized.

In addition to major disasters, there are a number of emergencies that can happen in any community on any day requiring seamless radio connections and data sharing including school shootings, earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, fires and crimes.

The SIEC aids all levels of government to achieve interoperability by functioning as a subcommittee of the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO).

SIEC Members represent a number of agencies divided nearly evenly between state and local jurisdictions.

We encourage you to attend SIEC Meetings
