Devote an open radio spectrum for America's first responders.


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.

Dear Members of Congress:

I request that you support the devotion of an open radio spectrum for America's first responders and emergency personnel.

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. On the anniversary of 9/11, I ask you, the members of Congress, to assign the open radio spectrum to public safety and support the nation's first responders.

Sincerely,
