National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG)
The National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG) is a technical reference for emergency communications planning and for radio technicians responsible for radios that will be used in disaster response. The NIFOG includes rules and regulations for use of nationwide and other interoperability channels, tables of frequencies and standard channel names, and other reference material, formatted as a pocket-sized guide for radio technicians to carry with them. A web-based copy is available at the following link:
The Communication Assets and Survey Mapping (CASM) tool that effectively analyzes public safety communications equipment data, identifies interoperability gaps in communications plans and enables collaboration on solutions for improvement. You must be a registered user to access CASM.
If you would like to view CASM information, start by contacting your agency CASM administrator for instructions. The administrator will submit a CASM registration form to OJA.
If you do not have a CASM Administrator, your agency must register an account administrator. Contact James Westover to obtain information about how to enroll your agency.
