Urgent Communications examines the fallout from last summer's derecho storms, which caused outages in several public-safety answering points, resulting in millions of people being unable to access the 911 system.

Also in this issue, we take a look at how retailers have expanded their use of video beyond theft prevention, report on how the state of Massachusetts leveraged multiple funding sources to support a major communications upgrade, and examine ways to minimize the effects of radio-frequency interference. Finally, we take a look at Harris' new public-safety LTE smartphone.
