FCC Opens Public Safety Support Center

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau today announced the opening of the new Public Safety Support Center (PSSC), which the agency described as “a web-based, one-stop portal to enable Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and other Public Safety entities to request support or information from the Bureau and to notify it of problems or issues impacting the provision of emergency services.

The PSSC is accessible via the Internet at https://www.fcc.gov/public-safety-support-center. A principal goal of the Bureau is to ensure consistent and timely support to public safety stakeholders.” In a blog posting today, Public Safety Bureau Chief David Simpson said, “This one-stop web portal can be used by public safety stakeholders to notify us of communications issues ranging from 911 service outages and fraudulent 911 calls to tower lighting outages and interference affecting public safety radio systems. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for public safety organizations to reach us online to convey concerns with communications issues.”
