Investing in Public Safety

FirstNet committed to build, deploy, operate, and maintain the network, with a focus on ensuring robust coverage for public safety users. The FirstNet is being built with direct feedback from state and public safety officials. Public safety stakeholders identified locations for increased network coverage and capacity to better support emergency communications. 

FirstNet is launching cell sites across the country to expand rural and remote coverage – including areas where a lack of connectivity has created a challenge for emergency response.
