interstate communications during times of crisis
How prepared is your state in the event of an emergency that required cooperation throughout the state by police, firefighters, and emergency personnel? Stateline.org is reporting that only fourteen states have upgraded their communications equipment to allow for such coordination.
A joint venture between the Department of Treasury and the Justice Department, the National Interoperability Scorecard measures and reports upon such improvements over the past two years. Delaware was one of the fourteen states to manage this change. Of course, Delaware may be small enough to pull this feat off with string and paper cups (just kidding... the State's not that small).
