Millions of responders bravely serve their communities every day. The First Responder Network Authority, or FirstNet Authority, works to ensure that FirstNet – America’s nationwide public safety broadband network – provides public safety the advanced communication technologies they need to help them do their jobs safely and effectively. Today, first responders use the network to enhance situational awareness, ensure coordinated response across multiple departments, agencies or jurisdictions; securely share and exchange mission critical information; and power apps and devices that deliver actionable data.
Below, are stories of how public safety integrates the FirstNet network into operations. Use the drop-down choices to sort content by operational topics and/or disciplines. For example, select “Devices” from the Key Issue/Technology menu and “Fire Service” from the Discipline menu to see how firefighters use devices on FirstNet.
