As the FCC's primary expert on public safety and homeland security matters, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) promotes the public’s access to reliable 911, emergency alerting, and first responder communications. We do this by developing and implementing policies, consistent with the FCC’s statutory authority, to ensure that our Nation’s first responders and the American public have access to effective and reliable communications, and by collaborating with Federal government partners responsible for protecting the Nation’s communications infrastructure. At the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, the public’s safety is job 1!
