ODPS Ohio Emergency Management Agency Communications and Interoperability Information

Communications and Interoperability Information

Communication Assets Survey and Mapping Tool (CASM)

CASM was initially released July 18, 2005 for use by Urban Areas that received grants from the Dept. of Homeland Security. Its use has since been extended to and recommended for use by all government entities submitting TICP information with grant applications.

Although only those authorized to do so may input and modify database information, all users can access its interoperability analysis features or generate reports in formats accepted by federal programs.

The tool which originally consisted of two components to separately collect and graphically view database information has since been consolidated into a single web-based application. It and other emergency communication related resources are available on the Department of Homeland Security OEC/ICTAP website at https://casmnextgen.com/ along with instructions on how to obtain access.
