The Utah Communications Authority (UCA) in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology (DHS S&T) is conducting a Data Sharing Workshop Thursday morning March 12th from 9:30 – 11:30 at the Utah State Library in Salt Lake City. Sign-in is 9:00 – 9:30. Refreshments will be served.

The workshop features an engaging panel discussion by local Utah public safety agencies discussing what really happens when sharing data between agencies – the challenges they face, the benefits they gain, and what their agencies see for the future.

Prior to the workshop, be sure to complete the Utah Information Sharing Assessment Tool (ISAT). UCA has worked with DHS S&T to create this online survey to assess Utah public safety data sharing readiness. DHS S&T will present statewide survey findings for Utah that you can compare to your agency’s results.

To create a backdrop for these activities, FirstNet Authority and AT&T regional representatives will provide an introduction to FirstNet for first-time participants and the latest local FirstNet network deployment progress for Utah.

As a capstone to the workshop, attendees will learn about sharing data interoperability best practices for their agencies from the recent released data interoperability report by Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) and other sources.

Who should attend: Utah public safety professionals from all levels and disciplines, law enforcement, fire, emergency medical service, IT/communications, 9-1-1, and emergency management are encouraged to attend.

Please forward this invitation to your peers, mutual aid partners, and other agencies you work with.
