TAKE ACTION - Support $15 Billion for NG9-1-1
APCO is launching a grassroots advocacy campaign and needs your support. A major infrastructure proposal - the LIFT America Act - has been introduced in Congress that includes $15 billion to support the deployment of Next Generation 9-1-1 throughout the country. The NG9-1-1 provisions 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.
Use APCO’s advocacy portal to send a letter asking for support to get this bill through the U.S. House of Representatives, and please share the link widely with colleagues: https://www.apcointl.org/government-relations/take-action/.
