The Safer Buildings Coalition (SBC) announced the initial members of its No Noise task force.

On December 21, the SBC rolled out its "No Noise" call to action and position paper. The goal of the task force is to focus on the problem of harmful interference caused by improperly deployed signal boosters. The scope of the task force is to address the past, present and future of public-safety in-building communications.

The task force will feature an executive steering committee, supported by working groups. It will be chaired by Chief Alan Perdue, the executive director of the Safer Buildings Coalition. The steering committee will provide guidance and oversight to the work groups.

The following industry veterans have already accepted positions on the steering committee:
• Chief Michael O'Brian, director, fire and life safety section for the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and fire chief with Brighton Area Fire Authority in Michigan
• Andy Seybold, a thought leader in the public safety communications space
• Michael Baltrotsky, assistant chief, technology section chief at Montgomery County (MD) Fire and Rescue Service
• Don Root, National Public-Safety Telecommunications Coalition (NPSTC) spectrum management committee chair
• Mark Crosby, president/CEO at the Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA)
• Tom Presnak, Underwriters Laboratory
• Kenny Blakeslee, president/CEO Pulse Signal Solutions/Apex Site Solutions
• John Foley, SBC managing director

The SBC is in conversation with several other industry executives and members of the public-safety leadership community to complete the steering committee.

Additionally, the task force has already received additional volunteers across multiple roles. Volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in the task force but the number of volunteers from one company may be limited. Volunteers include four authorities having jurisdiction, eight public-safety radio administrators or operators, one state and local government, one FCC RF exposure compliance and interference expert, two standards and codes bodies, eight consultants, two distribution and logistics experts, 17 in-building equipment manufacturers, 15 in-building system integrators, two test equipment providers and one trade association.
