Senator Kristen Gillibrand

Push For Better Emergency Communication

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand wants Congress to act on recommendations from the 9/11 Commission for improving the communications systems used by emergency responders nationwide.

It has been more than seven years since the 9/11 Commission identified a major flaw in emergency operations on the day of the terrorist attacks. The inability of emergency agencies to communicate on that day was a potentially deadly failure that Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says could have been avoided.
