iCERT Announces 2018 Policy Platform

The Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT) released its 2018 policy platform today. “As we approach the 50th anniversary of the first 911 call in America, and as broadband communications and data services for public safety agencies worldwide begin to take shape,” said iCERT Executive Director George Rice, “our positions on these critical issues will help the commercial sector support its public sector partners as we continue to address our mutual goal of enhanced safety and security for all citizens, residents and visitors.”

The group’s priorities are cybersecurity, enterprise communications system (ECS) access to 911, ESInet integration, next-generation 911 acceleration and adoption, NG-911/public safety broadband convergence and data interoperability, smart and safe communities, and a targeted states campaign on resourcing of 911.
