“SUPPORT.—The Federal Communications Commission shall encourage and support efforts by States to deploy comprehensive end-to-end emergency communications infrastructure and programs, based on coordinated statewide plans, including seamless, ubiquitous, reliable wireless telecommunications networks and enhanced wireless 9-1-1 service. In encouraging and supporting that deployment, the Commission shall consult and cooperate with State and local officials responsible for emergency services and public safety, the telecommunications industry (specifically including the cellular and other wireless telecommunications service providers), the motor vehicle manufacturing industry, emergency medical service providers and emergency dispatch providers, transportation officials, special 9-1-1 districts, public safety, fire service and law enforcement officials, consumer groups, and hospital emergency and trauma care personnel (including emergency physicians, trauma surgeons, and nurses). The Commission shall encourage each State to develop and implement coordinated statewide deployment plans, through an entity designated by the governor, and to include representatives of the foregoing organizations and entities in development and implementation of such plans.”

Besides violating Public Law 90-602 HR 10790, “Radiation Control for Public Health and Safety Act of 1968,” the 1999 “Wireless Communications and Public Safety Act,” provides zero safety, oversight, or management of deployments of constantly transmitting pulsed radiofrequency microwave radiation RF/MWR emissions.
Instead of permitting wireless telecommunications facilities (WTFs), various local governments around the country have decided to supply public fiber-optics to the premises (FTTP) for internet services, which is superior in every way to wireless internet transmissions. Fiber provides the fastest, clearest transmissions over the greatest distances. Link to C&D
