The Next Phase of FirstNet: Delivering Lifesaving Technologies to Public Safety

By Mike Poth, First Responder Network Authority CEO

With the governor’s decision process complete and every state and territory on board, we are excited to be in the next phase of FirstNet and delivering public safety’s vision for a nationwide network.

Along with our partner, AT&T, we are laser focused on expanding the network and supporting public safety’s use of FirstNet, making sure it delivers what they need, when they need it.

As we have discussed with the public safety community, network usage is a top priority for us going forward. We want as many public safety agencies and potential users as possible to know about FirstNet and the opportunities and benefits that it offers them.

To drive the successful adoption of FirstNet, today AT&T launched a brand expressly designed for FirstNet products and services. Having a specialized brand and logo will help public safety identify the FirstNet solution and lifesaving technologies the network offers first responders across our nation. 

The First Responder Network Authority looks forward to supporting the roll out of this dedicated service brand.  We will continue to use our logo to represent the organization – our mission, our people, and our programs.  It symbolizes the important mission we have been entrusted with as an advocate for public safety in network implementation and operation, as well as a driver of innovation for public safety communications. 

It is also a symbol that reminds us how truly honored we are to serve the public safety community from every discipline, jurisdiction, and state and territory across America. 

This is an exciting time for everyone involved in public safety. With the entire nation opting in to FirstNet, the public safety community, the First Responder Network Authority, and AT&T are transforming public safety communications together; helping first responders protect and serve their communities every day and in every emergency.
