APCO Is Launching a Grassroots Advocacy Campaign and Needs Your Support.

For several years, APCO has sought to correct the federal classification of 9-1-1 professionals by reclassifying them as Protective Service Occupations as opposed to Office and Administrative Support Occupations. Now, momentum is building in the House for a simple legislative fix with the reintroduction of the 9-1-1 SAVES Act (H.R. 6319). APCO is seeking the assistance of its members and others. We’re asking you to TAKE ACTION – Ask your U.S. Representatives to co-sponsor the 9-1-1 SAVES Act.
