Abstract
This thesis analyzes the current, planned, and potential future first responder policies, procedures, networks, and architecture in theMarine Corps. The current technology and information systems are studied to examine the level of interoperability between civilian and military first responders. Camp Pendleton Safety and Emergency Services Battalion is used as a case study in order to assess how these groups can combine their efforts in the case of an emergency or natural disaster. The planned first responder program, Emergency Management Command and Coordination (EMC2), is also assessed to examine the potential capabilities and interoperability that can be garnered through modernization of technology, networks, and information systems. The current and planned systems will be analyzed to determine how theMarine Corps can integrate into the Department of Commerce’s first responder network (FirstNet) in the future. This integration planning is vital in order to vet misalignment of civil and Department of Defense information technology security policies, foster ease of implementation of FirstNet for theMarine Corps, and to ensure early planning based on possible implementation models and metrics.
