(Recorded Webinar) Emergency Communications: Mastering Priority Telecommunications for Crisis Resilience

Duration: 54 minutes
Recorded on: 09/20/2023

In an increasingly interconnected world, the importance of reliable and efficient communication networks during emergencies cannot be overstated. The U.S. Government offers three Priority Telecommunications Services (PTS) options that enable essential personnel to communicate when networks are degraded or congested due to weather events, mass gatherings, cyber-attacks or events stemming from human error. By participating in the PTS program, organizations can significantly bolster their communications resiliency and emergency preparedness at little to no cost.

Join this webinar for a comprehensive review of the Priority Telecommunications Services program and its components, eligibility for enrollment, as well as pros and cons of integrating it into your organizational emergency management program.
