NPSTC Requests Participation in Survey

The National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) requests public safety agencies to complete a survey to allow stakeholders and policy-makers to forecast the needs of public safety communications over the next ten years. The survey can be accessed at AFST 2022-2032 Survey. The survey will expire in 30 days.

The survey takes about 15 to 30 minutes and should be completed by individuals who have technical and operational expertise in communications. They hope to get as many responses as possible to give a well-rounded look at the issues impacting public safety for future planning and budgeting. Please forward this survey to all that will provide insight to these issues being questioned.  

Traffic Signal Maintenance Handbook, 2nd Edition is now available!

The Traffic Signal Maintenance Handbook was recently updated to reflect the current state-of-the-practice and provide users with a broad overview of key considerations for the maintenance element of a traffic signal program.
