This past weekend, severe storms and deadly tornadoes devastated the Midwest, destroying homes and demolishing city centers. And while every disaster is different, there is one constant: the brave women and men on the frontlines who respond and restore the communities they serve. From firefighters, paramedics and law enforcement to the extended public safety community on the ground, the ability to seamlessly talk with one another is critical. That’s why America’s first responders advocated for the creation of FirstNet® – the only network built with and for first responders providing them with always-on priority and true preemption capabilities.
