FCC Extends Reply Comment Deadline for 911 NOI

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau today granted a request to extend by one week the reply comment deadline for a notice of inquiry adopted in March looking at ways to ensure that 911 calls placed from mobile phones reach the correct public safety answering point (PSAP) (TR Daily, March 22). Replies had been due June 21 in PS docket 18-64, but they will now be due June 28. In a joint motion for an extension filed last month (TR Daily, April 20), the National Emergency Number Association, the National Association of State 9-1-1 Administrators, the Texas 9-1-1 Entities, West Safety Services, Inc., Comtech Communications, Inc., and CTIA cited the timing of the National Emergency Number Association’s annual conference in Nashville June 16-21. – Courtesy, Paul Kirby
