The National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG) is a technical reference pocket-guide of spectrum reference material designed for use by field personnel responsible for emergency response and spectrum coordination during both planned events and emergency situations. First published by the DHS Office of Emergency Communications in 2007, the NIFOG was developed in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Chief Information Officer’s Spectrum Management Office to assist Federal and non-Federal agencies and potential users of the mutual aid channels.
The NIFOG contains sections on:
- Regulations and guidelines for national interoperability
- Tables of nationwide interoperability channels
- Common communications references
- Tables of commonly used frequencies
- GMRS, FRS and CB and marine frequencies
- GETS and satphone dialing instructions
and also includes an organized listing of the national mutual aid channels and other reference material.
The first version of the NIFOG was published in September 2007. A revised version (1.3) was issued in May 2009. Version 1.4 was published in January 2011.
