Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan (SCIP)
The Statewide Communication Interoperability Plans (SCIPs) are locally-driven, multi-jurisdictional, and multi-disciplinary statewide plans to enhance emergency communications. Alabama's SCIP addresses designated critical elements for statewide interoperability.
. The lack of interoperable communications continues to be a serious, pressing public safety problem that severely undermines the ability of first responders to operate effectively during emergencies. The impact of September 11, 2001, and the recent events of the April 2011 Tornado Outbreak and Hurricanes Ivan, Katrina, and Rita, underlines the urgent need for public safety departments and other emergency response agencies, to communicate reliably and effectively with one another when called on in a crisis. Federal, state, tribal and local governments are making progress towards improved communications systems; however, there is much to be done to build collaboration and planning for disaster communications. To achieve interoperability, public officials must continue to address the following:
- Incompatible and aging communications equipment
- Limited and fragmented funding
- Limited and fragmented planning
- Lack of coordination and cooperation
Governments at all levels play a critical role in meeting each of these challenges. They can provide the leadership to create statewide, regional and local communication interoperability capacity. Alabama's leadership will benefit most effectively by employing the following strategies:
- Implementing a governance structure that fosters collaborative planning among local, tribal, state, and federal government agencies
- Encouraging developing flexible and open architecture and standards
- Supporting funding for public safety agencies that work to achieve interoperability.

Alabama's Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan Version 2.0 is currently slated to be released in January 2013. This updated version will address Alabama's continuing efforts in addressing interoperable communications. Once version 2.0 has been signed by all appropriate parties, it will be published here on our website.


Alabama's Tactical Interoperable Communications Field Operations Guidebook (ALA_FOG)
The Alabama Statewide Tactical Interoperable Communications Field Operations Guide (ALA-FOG) is a collection of technical reference material to aid Communications Unit personnel in establishing solutions to support communications during emergency incidents and planned events. The ALA-FOG includes information from the Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan (SCIP), Regional Tactical Interoperable Communications Plan, and data from other Alabama communications documents; formatted as a pocket-sized guide. The ALA-FOG contains state and national interoperability channels. These channels should be programmed into all public safety radios in the appropriate frequency band. If geographic restrictions on some channels preclude their use within the State of Alabama, they may offer an interoperability option when responding out of territory where the restrictions do not apply.

this is very very good information on interop lots of freq information it can be download from here

In a disaster situation this is going to be a invaluable resource in radio interop if existing systems in the affected area are destroyed.

Medic, yes they do. We own property on the coast of AL and after Ivan (hurricane 2004) I saw many and even got a tour of one inside while checking our property damage. But I was stating that pdf is invaluable due too the large amount of pre-assigned freqs that will be used in large emergency interop or as the case of Ivan, complete destruction of existing communications even some military/uscg com's were destroyed at Pensacola AFB.

Not for just disasters. Large Scale events that exceed the normal Mutual Aid Frequencies as well. This could be Marathons, DNC, RNC, Final 4, Stanley Cup, World Series, Baskeball Championship and Superbowls are just some examples.

Even a Large College Graduation with a special Guest Speaker or Graduate could cause them to be used.
