Handbook on Emergency Telecommunications

image of Handbook on Emergency Telecommunications

This Handbook on Emergency Telecommunications is written to serve as a close companion to those involved in the noble work of providing as well as using telecommunications for disaster mitigation and relief. It simplifies and demystifies the complex technical issues that characterize the fast evolving field of telecommunications, especially in this era of convergence and emergence of next-generation networks. While designed to be simple, the Handbook is comprehensive, compact and contains useful factual information that is concise and organized for easy access, in particular by practitioners.

The regulatory framework

Maritime distress and safety communications have traditionally enjoyed privileges such as absolute priority and exemption from fees. The same rules apply for communications with and among aircraft. These privileges do not however apply to emergency Telecommunications on land. Recognition for their applicability in emergency and disaster situations has been recognised only recently, but much still remains to be done.
