Report on ICC from Lea Bellinger
The Intergovernmental Cooperative Council is made up of school, local government, and community and business leaders. Its purpose is to facilitate sharing resources and knowledge between entities. The ICC meets for breakfast in the W.U. student union on the third Thursday of the month. In October, the meeting was a sharing of experiences with the Affordable Care Act. At the November meeting, Derek Voohris, Public Safety Broadband Outreach Coordinator with the Kansas Office of Emergency Communications presented information on FirstNet, a broadband network that is being developed under the direction of the Federal Government. This network will be available to all first responders, law enforcement, and all emergency personnel. It will parallel existing cell networks but will be separate from the current system. It will allow seamless communication in an emergency, across state lines and across agencies. Posted 11/24/2014
