Government / Industry

In 1982, telecommunications industry and Federal government officials identified the need for a joint mechanism to coordinate initiation and restoration of national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) telecommunication services. In 1983, the group recommended to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) and to President Reagan that a joint industry and government-staffed NCC be created as a central organization to handle emergency telecommunication requests. On January 3, 1984, the NCC opened for business. Today, the NCC is home to the following telecommunications government and industry representatives:
