Due to communication challenges during the response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 9/11 Commission recommended the establishment of a single, interoperable network for public safety. For years, public safety organizations lobbied Congress to make this recommendation a reality. Therefore, when Congress established the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) in 2012, it based its mission on public safetya��s concerns and desires. The FirstNet network provides unique value exclusively for public safety users.
FirstNet grew from a recommendation made by the 9/11 Commission into a vision championed by public safety for years. That vision was advanced by Congress and carried out by the First Responder Network Authority. Now, with all 50 states, 5 territories and D.C. on board, ita��s become a reality.A�That reality brings public safety their own nationwide, dedicated communications platform to help them save lives and protect communities. And with it, a dedicated brand just for first responders.
By joining forces with AT&T, together they will build, deploy and maintain the first-ever nationwide public safety broadband network for America’s first responders. To drive the successful adoption of FirstNet, AT&T launchedA�a brand expressly designed for FirstNet products and services. Having a specialized brand and logo will help public safety identify the FirstNet solution and lifesaving technologies the network offers first responders across our nation.
