On or off duty, FirstNet is mission ready

Get started

A crisis can happen at any time, on or off duty

That's why FirstNet is here—to help keep lines of communication open for fire fighters and other first responders so you can connect to the critical information you need every day and in every emergency.

Uniquely built for first responders

FirstNet is the only network built with and for first responders, never competing with commercial traffic–especially during a disaster. Communications work reliably across departments, jurisdictions, and state lines.

“When we are managing critical incidents, it all starts with communication, and success is dependent on maintaining a reliable communication system through the chaos. FirstNet gives us the guarantee that on the worst day possible, public safety will have a resilient method for communication." 

Chief Brian Schaeffer,
Spokane Fire Department, Spokane, WA
