Cyren Call Proposal Receives Public Support (11/30)
Thursday, November 30, 2006 | Comments
More than 1,200 citizens and organizations publicly expressed their support in filings with the FCC for a proposal to preserve additional 700 MHz spectrum for a national public-safety wireless network. Cyren Call Communications noted the filings at the end of the FCC's 30-day comment period on the proposal. A reply comment period will be open until Dec. 14. In a statement, Cyren Call noted several excerpts from filings. "As one of the incident commanders at [the 1999 Columbine massacre], I can categorically say that our largest struggle was communications," said Charles Burdick, operations chief (retired) for the Littleton (Colo.) Fire Department. "This proposal would open the door to embracing a national vision with public-safety oversight, ongoing access to new technologies and an ongoing funding source. Cyren Call also noted support from the National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC), the International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA), the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials International (APCO), the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), and others.
