First of its kind ‘in person’ opportunity specifically directed to current FirstNet users to be held in Las Vegas, January 18-21, 2022
The Public Safety Broadband Technology Association (PSBTA) is your FirstNet Connection. Join us on January 18-21, 2022, as the PSBTA presents Vision 2022: FirstNet Users Summit. Learn, grow, and be inspired as public safety moves ahead in 2022 stronger than ever before.
Born from the 9/11 tragedy was FirstNet. FirstNet is America’s public safety network built for public safety. FirstNet provides reliable communication to keep your personnel and community safe. But let us remember our commitment 20 years ago to never forget. 9/11 was a defining moment for the United States as terrorists attacked America. But it also was a defining moment in our country’s response to terrorism uniting Americans.
FirstNet is a key component of that resilience. It is the prescription for first responder life safety and it is revolutionizing public safety. FirstNet provides the vital connectivity and lifesaving tools that first responders need to stay safe. Public safety leadership is measured by effective engagement with the community, wise use of taxpayers dollars, creating a safe community, and preserving a safe environment for employees to work. FirstNet offers these options along with network reliability and mission critical tools to deliver on these priorities.
For the first time a public private partnership levels the playing field. With FirstNet, the small public safety agencies have the same tools and values as the largest agencies. Imagine the enormous benefit to the lives of citizens in the smaller communities of our nation.
FirstNet innovation starts with a dedicated core network exclusively for public safety users. Now add priority and preemption, deployables, and the FirstNet ROG team. Additionally, tools like Mission Critical Push to Talk, LMR to LTE Interoperability, MegaRange, and Z-Axis are an added benefit in the life safety for all. Furthermore, there are devices, over 177 Apps and the excitement of FirstNet 5G.
FirstNet is the only network that is congressionally authorized with continued oversite from the FirstNet Authority. FirstNet is also giving back to first responders. This year, FirstNet has embarked on a health and wellness program for first responders utilizing therapy dogs. The program is called ROG the dog. Finally, dollars from subscriptions are reinvested to the FirstNet Authority for development of new technology for public safety.
The power of the FirstNet network is available to the public safety community, including law enforcement, fire service, and emergency medical service, as well as, emergency managers and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP). FirstNet is offered to public safety partners that support first responders during or after an emergency. This includes personnel working in government services, healthcare, schools, transportation, or utilities.
