The Issue

A Commitment to Public Safety

Every day, firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMTs, and other public safety officials risk their lives to help keep America safe. Unfortunately, for many years, these public servants have dealt with communication challenges that have impeded their ability to respond and act in an emergency. After the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, these challenges emerged in an even greater capacity when first responders could not communicate with one another.

Keeping America Safe is committed to helping our public officials  protect our communities. To do this, we support FirstNet, the first high-speed national broadband network solely dedicated to America’s public safety community. By creating FirstNet, first responders will be able to coordinate and respond more efficiently during times of emergency or crisis.

Emergencies happen when you least expect them. FirstNet provides our public safety officials with the tools they need to save lives and secure our nation, states, and local communities.
