The BEARS team works with community stakeholders to develop unified, cohesive, robust, and efficient systems for communication before, during, and after a large scale incident, possibly in the absence of everyday communications systems (cell phones, landlines, internet), during a lengthy power outage, and/or limited transportation or travel options. These systems may take the form of equipment, procedures, training, policies, and documentation.
The BEARS team will take a whole-community approach, working with specific groups to address their specific needs and capabilities, while integrating that with those of the larger community, with an eye towards inter-operability, inter-operation, economy of scale, avoiding duplication of efforts, and sharing what works well.
