The Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) took steps in 2017 to plan and prepare for what is sure to be an exciting future for public safety. I’m thrilled to lead the PSAC during this time of tremendous growth and the buildout and operation of the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network.
Our excitement is matched by the progress of the First Responder Network Authority and AT&T. The public-private partnership has delivered a nationwide network for public safety. And it will continue to deliver new and innovative solutions over the network, as well as bring its capabilities to bear to address any technological challenges inherent with a Network of this size.
The PSAC Executive Committee and I have been excited to see up close the impressive progress this past year, and we are eager to mobilize the PSAC in support of those efforts going forward.
