The PSFA, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was established in January 2002 by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials International (APCO). The PSFA’s objective is to provide critical funding and technical support to public safety answering points (PSAPs) and local emergency response officials.
Funding for the PSFA has been provided by a variety of sources, including donations from corporations, APCO members and staff and the Wireless E-911: PSAP Readiness Fund, a non-profit organization established by Nextel Communications and dedicated to supporting the timely implementation of wireless E-911.
The PSFA Advisory Committee, comprised of a cross section of public safety organizations, ensures broad-based input on the solicitation and use of grant funds.
The Public Safety Foundation of America’s mission is to engender cooperation among public and private groups to provide financial and technical support to the public safety communications community.
