NPSTC Publishes Recommendations for Intrastate Common Channel Naming
National Public Safety Telecommunications Council
Today the National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) published the Intrastate Channel Naming Recommendations which provides recommendations on the assignment of standardized names for regional and statewide interoperability channels.  This is a companion document to the NPSTC and Association of Public Safety Officials – International (APCO) American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Common Channel Naming Standard currently in the ANSI approval process.
NPSTC's Intrastate Channel Naming Recommendations provide a common system for naming the interoperability channels used regionally and statewide by local, regional, tribal, and state agencies throughout the state.
The scope of these recommendations includes first responders and other authorized users.  It applies to all voice communications channels designated by state agencies for interoperability purposes.
It does not apply to interoperability channels designated nationally by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or to federal agency channels designated nationally by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). These two groups of nationwide interoperability channels can be found in the National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG) and the ANSI/APCO/NPSTC ANS 1.104.2-2016 Standard.
