Communication Survey

By December 15, 2018No Comments

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is conducting a research survey with public safety personnel to gain a better understanding of the communication technology they currently use, need, and want in the future.

As part of this effort, we need feedback from EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement, and 911/Dispatch. Your input is vital in helping NIST figure out how to best meet communication technology needs moving forward. Your voices are important in this effort!

Participation is voluntary, and responses are confidential. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Please forward the link below to everyone in your agency/department and encourage them to take the survey. We are hoping to hear from as many first responders as possible in your department/agency, as well as from across the country.

We would appreciate it if you would share the link with other departments and agencies as well.

If you have any problems or issues accessing or taking the survey, please call our Help Desk at 1-877-828-3122.

For questions or concerns about the survey, please contact Kristen Greene at NIST at 301-975-8119 or

Thank you in advance for your help.
