In FCC proceeding, APTS makes case for aiding FirstNet

America’s Public Television Stations is turning to an FCC rulemaking in an attempt to aid its five-year quest to involve public TV stations in a new national emergency communications system.


DATE: December 9, 2019

The FCC proceeding addresses interconnectivity among public safety radio networks and doesn’t directly address APTS’ long-running issues with FirstNet, a congressionally mandated nationwide communication network for first responders. But APTS COO Lonna Thompson said an Oct. 11 comment in the proceeding is one way the organization hopes to promote the services public TV could provide with a seat at the table.
