Develops Regional Interoperable Communications FOG for Central New York (CNYICC)

January 9, 2014

In December 2013, Lafayette Group Inc., won a contract with the Central New York Interoperable Communications Consortium (CNYICC) to assist with the development of a Regional Interoperable Communications Field of Operations Guide (FOG).

The purpose of the FOGs is to provide emergency responders and public safety radio technicians throughout the Consortium with a practical and operational reference guide that can be used while responding to incidents. The FOGs will be designed to fulfill the specific interoperable communications needs of emergency responder agencies within the Consortium.

In addition to the FOGs, in September 2013 Lafayette Group assisted in developing and implementing modifications to the Tactical Interoperable Communications Plan (TICP) for the Consortium. The TICP established a formal set of interoperable communications governance, policies, and procedures for all emergency response agencies, disciplines, and jurisdictions to follow throughout the Consortium. The TICP also serves as a functional guide for regulating communications equipment throughout the Consortium, establishing common operating protocols and mandating the use of an active catalog system for interoperable communications resources. The new TICP is the result of fully collaborative actions undertaken by all invested stakeholders and allows members of the Consortium to make future updates and appropriate modifications.

The CNYICC consists of eight counties located in Central New York State and was derived from the legacy Syracuse Central New York Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) region. The Consortium was formed through a collaborative Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) for the specific purpose of achieving interoperable communications for first responders throughout the entire Central New York region.
