FirstNet is the nationwide, wireless communications platform dedicated to America’s first responders and public safety community. Backed by Congress, it gives firefighters, law enforcement, paramedics, 911 telecommunicators, emergency managers and more unthrottled access to the connectivity they need to efficiently and effectively coordinate and communicate their emergency response.
With FirstNet, we make public safety’s mission the priority. When public safety agencies on FirstNet respond to an incident – whether it be a hurricane, wildfire, flood, earthquake, tornado or man-made disaster – we’re there by their side, helping to coordinate Public Safety’s needs and deliver for the men and women our communities are counting on most. That’s what it means to be Public Safety’s network platform partner.
In 2018 alone, FirstNet supported Public Safety during 100+ emergency operations – helping them stay connected and operate faster, safer and more effectively when lives are on the line.

Public safety agencies subscribing to FirstNet have access to a dedicated, nationwide fleet of
Public safety agencies on FirstNet can request this equipment for added support during disasters at no additional charge. These assets are designed to keep FirstNet subscribers connected, no matter where their mission takes them.
In addition to the FirstNet fleet, Public Safety will be able to tap into the 300+ assets, from the AT&T Network Disaster Recovery fleet when available.
To strengthen Public Safety’s command and control of their network, we launched the FirstNet Response Operations Program. This program aligns with Homeland Security’s National Incident Management System. The FirstNet Response Operations Program – led by former first responders – guides the deployment of the FirstNet deployable assets based on the needs of Public Safety, coordinating across federal, state, local and tribal agencies with a focus on life safety, incident stabilization and property conservation.
