June 2, 2008... Publication of the IAFC (pdf) follows a year of extensive study of current practices supported by laboratory testing. Two reports will detail this study and laboratory testing (see NTIA report and DPWG Interim Report).These best practices will provide operational examples for the most effective and safest use of portable radios in a fire-service environment. While originally focusing on digital radios, it was determined that the presentation had valuable information for all types of portable radios, both analog and digital.In 2007, the IAFC formed a working group composed of fire-service personnel, other public-safety representatives, wireless-radio manufacturers, manufacturers of fire apparatus and equipment and consultants to address potential problems found in digital radios in the presence of loud background noise. The IAFC has been working in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Commerce to develop reliable data to address the extent and nature of the problem.Additional details: Go to 3/20/2007 IAFC member alert
