Prince William and Stafford Counties; and Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas and Manassas Park Cities.

The Region 20 meetings are open to the public. All eligible public safety providers in Region 20
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 the planning for the use of public safety spectrum
in the 700 MHz and 800 MHz bands within Region 20 should plan to attend. For further information,
