Massive storm knocks out communications
A huge hurricane slams the coast
Hundreds of thousands of people are displaced. Millions of customer lines, and nearly a thousand cell sites are lost. The loss of communications between first responders has hindered the initial response.
How can FirstNet help?
- Provide access to broadband deployables to restore communications so agencies can coordinate response and access to ruggedized equipment.
- Enable priority and preemption capabilities to provide reliable communications for first responders.
- Ensure primary and extended primary capabilities to ensure that hospitals can stay connected to first responders.
- Offer consistent access to other resources, such as automatic vehicle location (AVL), computer-aided dispatch (CAD), mapping, and enhanced push-to-talk (EPTT) resources.
