Your Public Safety Network
The First Responder Network Authority is an independent public safety communication platform dedicated to first responders, healthcare providers, and government agencies. Chartered in 2012, within the U.S. Department of Commerce, its mission is to ensure the building, deployment, and operation of the country’s broadband network in order to save lives and protect our communities.
The FirstNet system operates on the AT&T LTE broadband network - ensuring consistent emergency service connections during natural and manmade disasters. Federal, state and local authorities utilize the system, including:
- Security Teams
- Sheriffs and Highway Patrol
- Hospitals and Clinics
- Department of Transportation
- State and City Emergency Offices
- Government Leaders
Utilizing one network for emergency communications ensures that all emergency response teams can communicate across channels on a reliable system.
Better Network Connectivity
Having an exclusive, LTE broadband connection provides your team with the capacity to send large amounts of data, including text, images, and video, over the network quickly, without interruption during times of crisis and unpredictability.
Priority & Preemption
With the FirstNet network, public safety gets a dedicated “fast lane” that provides highly secure communications every day and for every emergency. FirstNet delivers specialized features to public safety that are not available on wireless networks today, including priority access and preemption.
Interoperability in Disasters
Incident commanders need to quickly convey vital data to every officer, medic and fire crew in the field. The FirstNet broadband connects these teams with neighboring jurisdictions and other emergency crews nearby. This interoperable network provides better emergency response times and more resources.
