Power of connection with FirstNet

FirstNet empowers public safety first responders to do their job through the power of connection.

FirstNet®, Built with AT&T is the only network built with and for first responders and those who support them. It’s designed to fit your unique and evolving communications needs with transformative mission critical solutions to modernize public safety. Together, we are unlocking innovation and an ecosystem to support next generation tools.


What is Connected Response for Public Safety?

  • Priority access

    Get always-on priority access to voice, data and text. This means you will have priority over commercial traffic on the network.
  • Sensitive data is protected

    A dedicated Security Operations Center monitors the network 24x7 for physical and cyber threats and the physically-separate FirstNet core has available end-to-end encryption.
  • Temporary service solutions for expanded coverage when disaster strikes

    100+ Cell on Wheels (COWs) and heavy-duty Satellite Cell on Light Trucks (SatCOLTs) can keep you connected while you support first responders and restore power grids/water supplies.
  • LMR to LTE interoperability

    Your FirstNet PTT users can communicate seamlessly with users on your LMR network. This will help improve productivity, free up LMR capacity and extend your operational reach at a lower cost.
