The White House released a factsheet describing the actions made to support communities impacted by the Maui wildfires.
FirstNet is supporting public safety officials by providing coverage with deployable communication assets as they respond to flooding across eastern Kentucky. These resources include a SatCOLT, communication vehicles, compact rapid deployables, as well as in-building solutions.
Public safety requested FirstNet emergency support 100+ times for Hurricane Ian. Assets from the dedicated FirstNet fleet supported first responders in affected areas, including Charlotte, Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Lee, Manatee, Orange and Sarasota counties in Florida, as well as Charleston and Georgetown counties in South Carolina. Making use of new innovations, FirstNet used amphibious vehicles and helicopters to deploy Compact Rapid Deployables to Sanibel Island and Pine Island.
