U.S. FCC Asks How to Ensure Communications for Emergency Workers

U.S. regulators asked for comments on the requirements they should put in place to ensure emergency workers nationwide can communicate with one another.

The Federal Communications Commission on a 5-0 vote today also required new emergency communications networks to use so-called fourth-generation wireless systems that can swap voice, video and data.

The agency’s action “takes us closer to our goal” of a nationwide network for public safety workers such as police and firefighters, said Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker, a Republican.

The FCC wants comments on topics including coverage requirements, security and encryption, and interference prevention, the agency said in a news release.
