When disasters strike, first responders need to make informed, safe, and effective decisions to mitigate the impact of a crisis and save lives. To do so, public safety officials need access to a reliable communications network to facilitate and coordinate resources in a moment’s notice.
Through the First Responder Network Authority’s (FirstNet Authority) ongoing consultations with public safety, we learned they needed a coverage solution that they could deploy almost anywhere at any time. The FirstNet Compact Rapid Deployable (CRD) is a state-of-the-art portable communications asset exclusively designed to meet public safety’s unique coverage needs.
