Grants to USA state and public IHEs to provide training and resources to improve the delivery of emergency medical services in rural regions. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of funding is to provide innovative solutions to gaps in communication for emergency medical services.
The NECP, recently updated in September 2019, recognizes this evolving landscape with the involvement of new stakeholders and rapid changes in technologies and policies impacting emergency communications. Response agencies are becoming more connected to additional sources of information during emergencies, such as medical personnel, public health professionals, critical infrastructure operators, and private citizens. Collaboration with whole community representatives is key to support a broad set of NECP activities, including rural emergency medical care and other needs (e.g., cybersecurity solutions, patient tracking, alerting systems, and social media guidance).
Through demonstration projects with up to two public and state controlled institutions of higher education, REMCDP’s goal is to examine communications barriers and identify solutions that enhance existing emergency communications infrastructure to improve the delivery of rural medical care and address NECP implementation gaps. REMCDP’s goal aligns with CISA’s mission to support and promote communications capabilities used by emergency responders and government officials to keep America safe, secure, and resilient. In turn, REMCDP supports the 2019 NECP updated goals and objectives.
The demonstration project must meet the REMCDP Program Objectives. All applicants should clearly state how the following objectives would be addressed in the proposed project:
