PSAC: Working Groups

Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC)

Working Groups

Early Builders Working Group

An Early Builders Working Group (EBWG) comprised of representatives from the jurisdictions below was established to provide FirstNet with early builder strategies and lessons learned that will assist in planning efforts for the FirstNet network. The EBWG meets monthly via teleconference, with one in-person meeting each year.

Tribal Working Group

A Tribal Working Group (TWG), comprised of volunteer delegates from associations with diverse geographic and disciplinary interests in tribal public safety, was established to provide advice on Indian Country outreach, education, and inclusive engagement strategies.  FirstNet’s intent is to inform and involve federally recognized tribes in planning for and deployment of the FirstNet network. The TWG provides unique and valuable perspective to FirstNet’s Board and staff, as well as to state single points of contact (SPOCs).  They meet monthly via teleconference, along with several in-person meetings each year.

Federal Working Group

A Federal Working Group (FWG) consisting of federal practitioners from across all public safety disciplines on operational activities was established to further integrate FirstNet’s federal outreach and consultation activities with the PSAC’s work and drive planning efforts for the NPSBN. The FWG is led by representatives from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Justice.
