How transportation supports first responders

Public and private transportation plays a vital role in assisting in emergency response and public safety, so it’s important that you stay connected. FirstNet also offers the latest in fleet monitoring, IoT, and LMR (Land mobile radio) interoperability. 


Take your communication to the next level

FirstNet Push-to-Talk Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Interoperability allows team members using two-way radios and the FirstNet Push-to-Talk (PTT) service to talk to one another, simply and reliably.

“If we have another situation like Hurricane Harvey, and the public cellular systems go down, we need reliable communication so we can assist fire and police in clearing roads of vehicles, cleaning up debris and moving trees.  Our towing professionals need to be able to help first responders during emergency situations, and FirstNet provides us with communications and connectivity that we need as  art of the emergency response team.”
