FCC Creates Public Safety Bureau (9/26)
Tuesday, September 26, 2006 | Comments
The FCC Tuesday ordered the creation of a new bureau bringing together all public safety and emergency communications issues within one office. The Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau will be charged with providing a more efficient, effective, and responsive organizational structure to address public safety, homeland security, national security, emergency management and preparedness, disaster management, and other related issues, according to the FCC. The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) praised the effort, first adopted in March. It is NENAs sincere hope that placing a single bureau in charge of all 9-1-1 issues will enhance the FCCs continuing efforts to expedite the national deployment of E9-1-1 for all technologies, said NENA President Bill Munn. The new bureau is charged with coordinating all 9-1-1 issues within the commission.
