FirstNet Significantly Contributes to East Troublesome Fire Response

When communications went down as the Grand Lake Fire Protection District battled the East Troublesome Fire, the department needed help. With FirstNet, public safety agencies have access to a nationwide, dedicated fleet of 76 land-based and airborne portable cell sites upon request.

Stationed across the country, these assets are available 24/7 at the request of public safety entities at no additional charge to FirstNet subscribers to provide additional connectivity in support of public safety’s mission.

Hear from GLFPD Wildland Division Chief Brian Faith on how they resolved their communications issues with a FirstNet portable cell site during this critical time.
