In the early days of his career, FirstNet Senior Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Advisor Brent Williams was a paramedic working private EMS. He was then accepted to work with the Ingham County Sheriff Department in Michigan as a police officer/paramedic. For 11 years, Brent responded to emergencies as an officer with a stethoscope.
After more than three decades as a first responder in the field, Brent wanted to share his firsthand knowledge as a consultant. Most recently, before joining FirstNet, Brent was an EMS Radio Communications Consultant to the EMS and Trauma Systems Section of Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services. He has also served as a longstanding member of the Department of Homeland Security SAFECOM Emergency Response Council.
Brent enjoys speaking at different EMS meetings around the country about FirstNet, and draws from his wealth of experience to explain the endless advantages the network is anticipated to bring, like advanced diagnostic capabilities, a better picture of what patients need in real-time, and more medical data resources to pull from than ever before.
Brent is available to meet or talk with agencies who want to learn more about FirstNet and help the First Responder Network Authority shape the future of the FirstNet network and public safety communications.
