State Visits

Building on the regional workshops, FirstNet has started to initiate individual visits to each of the states and territories to continue the dialog about building a broadband network dedicated to public safety. FirstNet will work through each designated state point of contact to arrange a visit, agree on the agenda and identify participants. Timing will depend on the State’s readiness, the State and Local Implementation Grant Program (SLIGP) Phase 1 activities, and how quickly FirstNet can fully staff its outreach team. The agenda for initial FirstNet visits will focus on roles and responsibilities, users and coverage needs. We will also discuss expectations for data collection and other state-specific issues. These meetings will pave the way for ongoing collaboration that will result in FirstNet’s development of 56 unique state deployment plans.
