The vision of the NECP is to ensure emergency response personnel can communicate as needed, on demand, and as authorized. To achieve this vision, ECD provides the Communications Assets and Survey Mapping (CASM) Tool. The CASM Tool is the primary resource nationwide for the emergency communications community to inventory and share asset and training information for the purpose of planning public safety communications operability and interoperability. DHS provides the CASM Tool as a secure and free nationwide database to contain communications capabilities for use by Federal, State, Local, Territorial, and Tribal (SLTT) emergency personnel. CASM allows Federal employees and SLTT Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (SWIC) to inventory emergency communication equipment and resources. The information entered is voluntary and used by SWIC to support tactical planning and coordination during emergencies. DHS does not utilize the information entered into CASM. DHS only provides, maintains, and stores the information entered in the CASM database and only has administrative access to the information entered. All information is collected via electronic means. The CASM registration and database tool is available online via https:// casm.dhs.gov/. Users can also access and enter information via the CASM Resource Finder mobile app. This is a new information collection. OMB is particularly interested in comments that: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2.
