  • APCO International Call for Action

    Good Afternoon Atlantic Chapter of APCO Members,

    APCO International has asked that we send out the below call to action to our membership. You may have seen that members of the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee introduced the LIFT America Act, an infrastructure bill that includes $15 billion for the deployment and implementation of Next Generation 9-1-1 throughout the country. The NG9-1-1 provisions (section 15001) adhere to principles established by APCO and its partners in the Public Safety Next Generation 9-1-1 Coalition, a broad group of national public safety organizations representing law enforcement, fire, EMS, and 9-1-1. View APCO’s Press Release and the Coalition’s Press Release.

    Late last week, APCO launched an advocacy portal that will enable the membership to offer their support of this bill. It’s very easy to use – you just input information about yourself, including name, title, and agency, and it will send a letter of support to your respective U.S. representative and governor. Anyone can send these letters including all agency staff, colleagues, etc.

    Again, the link to the advocacy portal is: TAKE ACTION | APCO International (
