Both Region 8 Public Safety RPCs’ meetings are open to the public. All eligible public safety
providers in Region 8 may utilize these frequencies. It is essential that eligible public safety agencies in
all areas of government, including state, municipality, county, and Native American Tribal be
represented in order to ensure that each agency’s future spectrum needs are considered in the allocation
process. Administrators who are not oriented in the communications field should delegate someone with
this knowledge to attend, participate, and represent their agency’s needs.
All interested parties wishing to participate in planning for the use of public safety spectrum in
the 700 MHz, 4.9 GHz, and 800 MHz bands within Region 8 should plan to attend. For further
