Corporation for Public Broadcasting Announces Contract Award
May 8, 2019

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has announced the award of a contract to Federal Engineering, Inc. (FE) to review current and future ways public media supports public safety and emergency alerting for our nation, at-large and on the ground in local communities.

“As the steward of the federal appropriation for public media, CPB is exploring how public media entities can enhance their public safety services and be an even stronger partner with federal, state, and local public safety officials,” said Ted Krichels, CPB senior vice president, system development & media strategy. “Chosen through a competitive process, Federal Engineering demonstrated a deep understanding of the multifaceted public safety ecosystem and identified pathways in which public media can strengthen their service in this ever-changing space.”

Federal Engineering, a leading, nationwide communications systems planning and design firm, will identify and analyze how public media supports public safety and emergency alerting in the U.S., assess opportunities and challenges in light of new technologies, make recommendations, and produce a whitepaper on public media’s role in the future of public safety. The company will also create easy-to-understand graphics on this topic.
