SECB Finance Committee took action on February 9, 2023 to encourage each of the state's seven (7) Emergency Communication Board (ECB) and Emergency Services Board (ESB) regions to develop a Regional Needs document and submit them to the SECB Finance Committee as soon as practicable. The SECB Finance committee will then, in turn, share these documents with other SECB Committees and the Board so the SECB can advocate for legislative funding to address statewide LMR needs.
The Central Minnesota Emergency Services Board is one of seven regional Emergency Communications Boards (ECBs) and Emergency Services Boards (ESBs) in the state of Minnesota that have been established to provide local governance on matters related to emergency communications.
2022 - 2024 Statewide Communication Interoperability Plan (SCIP)
The Minnesota 2022-2024 Statewide Communication Interoperability Plan (SCIP) is a stakeholder-driven, multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary strategic plan. The SCIP provides an effective mechanism to support decision-making, funding prioritization and measurement of overall progress toward building and sustaining interoperable emergency communication capabilities across the state.
2019 - 2021 Strategic Plan
The safety of Minnesota’s emergency responders, citizens and visitors is accomplished through the state-of-the-art interoperable public safety communications systems.
Enable emergency responders and citizens to communicate easily and respond immediately in critical emergency situations by providing reliable and robust systems for interoperable communications across counties, state, federal and tribal regions.
2016 - 2018 Strategic Plan
The Statewide Emergency Communications Board (SECB) is responsible for providing Minnesota residents and public safety responders with multiple and reliable means of communications before, during and after emergencies. This strategic plan will outline the SECB’s priorities and funding strategies to:
Ensure advances in technology will be implemented to enhance the ability for all residents to call for help.
Provide confidence that responders in every corner of the state have the ability to communicate with each other during every public safety incident.
Enable all counties to effectively alert and warn residents and visitors of impending danger.
The SECB provides leadership to set the vision, priorities and technical roadmap for interoperable communications across the state.
Public safety stakeholders, including law enforcement, fire, emergency medical, emergency management, technology experts, state agencies, health care systems, elected officials, a subset of the SECB and legislative staff, provided input for this plan.
