Our law enforcement officers, fire fighters and EMS personnel deserve the latest technology available. The FCC’s commitment to building a nationwide, interoperable public safety wireless broadband network represents a historic opportunity to enhance the services available to Public Safety. Losing the necessary spectrum, called the D Block, will make Public Safety vulnerable because Public Safety won’t be able to implement the much needed next generation technologies.

You Can Make a Difference – Contact Your U.S. Sentators before the hearing on September 23rd!

Ask them to support The Public Safety Spectrum and Wireless Innovation Act of 2010, bill S.3756. They need to hear from all of Public Safety that the auction of this spectrum will restrict your ability to keep our communities and Public Safety personnel safe.

What’s at Stake for Public Safety

  • Loss of Public Safety control and priority during day-to-day and emergency incidents puts the commercial interests above that of Public Safety.
  • D Block interference will result in communication holes for Public Safety users, threatening lives.
  • Lack of capacity for multi-agency operations or even low quality multimedia applications.
  • The need for additional spectrum has been demonstrated but the FCC has directed Public Safety to roam on commercial carrier networks for additional spectrum. Accountability without control endangers lives.
  • Make a Difference and Call Your U.S. Senators Now
    Ask them to support bill S.3756, the Public Safety Spectrum and Wireless Innovation Act of 2010 and give the spectrum to Public Safety – to be controlled by Public Safety.
