Alexandria, Va. – The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International is seeking comments on candidate American National Standard (ANS) 2.106.1-201x which addresses site hardening requirements for public safety grade sites.

The public may review and comment on this candidate standard from June 29 through August 13, 2018.  Reviewers may use the following link to access the document for review and comment:
