First responders in the Ozarks excited about new communications network

Enhance and expand network coverage along Washington D.C.'s waterways, to cover areas that are today underserved, benefitting first responders and residents throughout the District's urban centers. He says cell phone communication was not reliable in that disaster.

Create an efficient communications experience for public safety personnel in agencies and jurisdictions across the state during natural disasters and severe weather like Hurricane Jose in September 2017 that caused coastal flooding and high winds in the state.

MS created a statewide wireless network for all levels of government after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority will continue to work closely with states and territories.

FirstNet, an independent authority within the U.S. Department of Commerce was born out of a recommendation from the 9/11 Commission to enhance communications used by fire, police and EMS to develop, build and operate the first nationwide, broadband network that modernizes communications used by the public safety community.

"Thanks to Gov. Bryant's opt-in decision, first responders in MS will now have access to the pioneering communications tools made possible with FirstNet", Mayo Flynt, president of AT&T MS, said in a prepared statement. The governor said other states had also expressed concerns about AT&T's plan, but time ran out for them to get comfortable with opting out.

But Sununu came under intense pressure from business groups, first responders and communications workers unions, all of whom questioned the wisdom of taking a chance on Rivada. First responders we're not able to make phone calls, but they could text.

"With Governor Carney's decision today, FirstNet will deliver a state-of-the art network to address the challenges of communicating in all parts of DE - whether along the coast or in rural or underserved areas", said First Responder Network Authority CEO Mike Poth. "Public safety across the Magnolia state will gain access to the broadband network specifically built to meet the demands of their mission".

FirstNet will transform the way Mississippi's fire, police, EMS and other public safety personnel communicate and share information. While New Hampshire has said it will opt out, it's still in talks with FirstNet.

Over the next five years, AT&T will be adding additional wireless spectrum to its network that will be dedicated for the use of first responders, he said.

Joseph Klinger, acting director for the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, in a release from the governor said, "This decision is the culmination of a 4½-year effort leveraging input from first responders across all of Illinois". Chartered in 2012, its mission is to ensure the building, deployment, and operation of the nationwide, broadband network that equips first responders to save lives and protect U.S. communities. "We're honored to bring this life-saving solution to the state".
