The IAFC and the Federal Communications Commission are partnering to create a voluntary program to help the public transition to digital television (DTV) and ultimately aid the expansion of the national public-safety communication network.

The IAFC seeks fire and rescue departments interested in participating in this program. The program links community members who are having technical difficulties installing or using DTV converter boxes with local departments that have volunteered to help residents ensure their technical connections work. In addition, this program allows departments the opportunity to conduct home fire safety and smoke alarms checks.
