About Our Association

The FCCA is a Federal Communication Commission (FCC) certified frequency coordinator for ALL public safety frequencies, including those in the 700 MHz and 800 MHz bands. We provide a full range of radio communications services for forestry and conservation agencies, police, fire/EMS and local government.

Our Main Function

As initially chartered, we served only the Forestry Conservation (PO) and, later the Local Government (PX) radio services. In this capacity, the FCCAs main function was to assist federal, state, and local governments in public safety two-way radio operations by locating suitable frequencies within specified operating areas, recommending their assignment to the FCC for licensing, and protecting them once authorized.

Today we serve all public safety licensees on a non-discriminatory basis. Our years of experience as a frequency coordinator and regional staff bring unique expertise and capability to services that will serve your organization’s needs.
