The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued AMPS outreach language (an “FCC Consumer Advisory”) on its Web site. Dealers can refer customers to the FCC to help educate them about AMPS and who will be affected by the Sunset Clause — set to take effect on February 18, 2008.

The FCC used much of the Alarm Industry Communications Committee (AICC) suggested language.

“Alarm companies now have an official FCC proclamation about the AMPS transition that they can provide to their customers in printed form or by referring them to the FCC’s Web site. This should be of great help to alarm companies in explaining the issue to their customers,” said Lou Fiore, chairman of AICC.
