Annual Report Details FirstNet Progress on Public Safety’s Network
In our latest Annual Report to Congress, the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) outlines the significant progress made in fiscal year (FY) 2018 to deliver on Congress’s vision of creating a truly nationwide, interoperable broadband public safety network. It was a landmark year for public safety, as the FirstNet network deployment began ahead of schedule following the decisions of all US states and territories and the District of Columbia to participate in the deployment of the nationwide public safety broadband network. Today, public safety entities throughout the nation are benefitting from the power of the network as they respond to emergencies and in their daily operations. This includes more than 7,250 agencies using more than 600,000 connections on the FirstNet network, and over 100 devices approved and certified for use on the FirstNet network. The FirstNet Authority worked with jurisdictions and organizations across the country to educate first responders about the benefits of broadband for public safety and the ways it is changing vital public safety communications.
