FirstNet continues to gain rapid momentum with 600,000+ device connections being used by more than 7,250 public safety agencies.
At the Texas A&M University Internet 2 Technology Evaluation Center’s Winter Institute Workshop and Exercise, first responders trained on how to respond during an earthquake. The exercise used FirstNet to demonstrate how the network could enhance operational communications during a natural disaster.
During the month of May, the FirstNet Authority is recognizing and celebrating first responders for the critical, lifesaving work they perform year-round.
The aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City highlighted the critical need for dependable communications among first responders during emergencies and disasters.
Public safety communications in Baltimore County is getting a critical upgrade with the launch of a new, purpose-built cell site. The site – located on Hazelwood Avenue – is part of Maryland’s FirstNet build, which is bringing increased coverage and capacity to first responders across the state.
