Better Backup

An urban, multi-agency response


Coordinating communications

In large urban areas, law enforcement agencies in surrounding towns and cities often step in to provide back-up to their neighbors. In many of these instances, the disparate communication systems across agencies can hinder the response time and exchange of information.

How can FirstNet help?

  • Provide a single point of communication for multiple responders to save time, offer consistent information, and improve safety.
  • Provide enhanced Push-to-Talk (EPTT), which allows each agency to delineate communications channels and creates clear command and control structure among personnel. It also allows them to cooperate with each other seamlessly.
  • Offer supervisors and incident commanders a separate connection, allowing them to speak with each other while maintaining contact with personnel.
