Emergencies know no boundaries, a reality that first responders live every day. That’s why coverage is king for public-safety communications. First responders need connectivity in the places where their mission takes them. At the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority), we ensure that public safety’s critical communications needs are at the center of the deployment of FirstNet, the nationwide public-safety broadband network. Together with our contractor, AT&T, we’ve engaged with public safety officials to map out expanding network coverage, including in traditionally underserved and rural areas.
