FDNY Gets Expanded Access to T-Band for Medical Dispatch
Friday, April 10, 2020 | Comments

The FCC granted New York City special temporary authority (STA) to expand the capacity and coverage of the Fire Department of New York’s communications system using T-Band spectrum to support emergency medical dispatch operations during the coronavirus pandemic.

“During this national crisis, public-safety communications, including the ability to dispatch first responders using emergency radios, are more critical than ever,” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. “This additional spectrum access will help ensure that New York’s emergency communications networks do not become overwhelmed and can continue to work smoothly. We are granting use of additional frequencies to help New York City’s heroic first responders carry out their life-saving work.”
