Our Interoperability Services

RCC Can Help Your Agency Improve Interoperability

More than 2.5 million first responders work for 18,000 law enforcement agencies, 26,000 fire departments, 6,000 rescue departments and many other essential services agencies in the United States. All of these groups need to be able to communicate with each other during critical incidents. Can your agency talk to the other agencies in your community? If not, RCC Consultants can help. We can assist your agency with:

  • Advancing interoperability along the SAFECOM Continuum
  • Effective governance structures
  • Education and outreach programs
  • Grant funding research and applications
  • Concept of Operations Plans (CONOPS)
  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
  • Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan (SCIP) updates
  • Regional and Tactical Interoperable Communications Plans (RICP, TICP)
  • Needs assessment
  • System evaluation, design, procurement and implementation
  • Budget planning
  • Training and Exercise Planning Workshops (TEPW)

  • Multi-year Training and Exercise Plans (TEP)

  • HSEEP-Compliant training and exercises
  • Turnkey interoperability program management services (PMO)


Funding Interoperability

Billions of dollars in federal funding is available for public safety agencies to improve interoperability. But the window to utilize these funds is shrinking every day.


RCC’s grants department, with a greater than 90% success rate in obtaining grants for our public safety clients, can help. Our team has extensive training in all aspects of the grants cycle for grant recipients, pass-through entities and state and federal awarding agencies. Learn more.


Our Interoperability-Related Certifications

Our teams understand interoperability from the agency’s perspective, because many of our staff were first responders. We have multiple DHS and FEMA certifications, including:

  • Incident Command System (ICS)
  • National Incident Management System (NIMS)
  • Communications Unit Leader (COML)
  • Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP)


Our teams also have an in-depth working knowledge of the SAFECOM Interoperability Continuum, and have assisted clients in all five lanes of the Continuum.


Advancing Interoperability in California

RCC is leading the Regional Interoperability Program Management Office (PMO) for the California Statewide Interoperability Executive Committee (CalSIEC) Central Planning Area.


We’re helping more than 120 public safety agencies develop and adopt governance models, establish interoperable communications plans and plan and conduct HSEEP-compliant training, tabletop and full-scale exercises to improve interoperability in the seven-county region.
