Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Julius Genachowski invoked September 11th as a deadline for "substantial progress" on a public safety network for first responders.

During the first meeting of a public safety advisory group, he said the agency must move forward on key issues "by the tenth anniversary of 9/11." Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau Chief Jamie Barnett echoed the remarks, noting problems in how public safety agencies are connected today. Agencies still have trouble talking to each other across varying devices and across jurisdictions.
