Ten years after 9/11, first responders still lack access to basic resources, including an open radio spectrum for first responders nationwide. This lack of communication caused confusion and deaths in the aftermath of 9/11. Devoting this open radio spectrum would allow first responders to communicate with each other, including inter-agency communications.  Some members of Congress would like to see these radio airwaves auctioned off to private companies, rather than dedicated to citizens of our country. Tell Congress how important this issue is to the safety of the first responders and the safety of the citizens of the United States and request that Congress devote and open radio spectrum to America's first responders rather than auctioning off this valuable resource.
