State Game Wardens

Making a dangerous job safer


Into the wild

Game wardens take on treacherous jobs - they enforce wildlife and civil laws, conduct searches and rescues, control wildlife populations, teach outdoor programs, and support research. They face threats from hunters, poachers, wild animals, off-road vehicles, boats, snowmobiles, planes. Drowning and hypothermia can also loom in the remote locations they protect.

How can FirstNet help?

  • Enhanced Push-to-Talk (EPTT) devices leverage existing local LMR systems to communicate with local law enforcement.
  • Location-based applications can help game wardens coordinate with other responders - even in remote areas.
  • Game warden vehicles can become mobile hotspots in remote areas to ensure location mapping and video streaming.
