The IAFC has launched a Voter Voice campaign to support preserving public safety’s access to the T-Band. Engage with the issue by sending a letter to your representative. Click here to share your support.
The T-Band auction in 2021 is set to affect hundreds of departments nationwide. Even if you are not in an affected area, participate in our Voter Voice campaign to let your members of Congress know that protecting public safety communications is important to you. If you are interested in learning more about how the T-Band will affect fire departments across the country, visit the IAFC Communications & Technology Page or reference the Government Accountability Office Highlights of their June T-Band report entitled, “Required Auction of Public Safety Spectrum Could Harm First Responder Capabilities".
