Full Title

The FirstNet mission is to deploy, operate, maintain, and improve the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety.

Context

A reliable, highly secure, interoperable, and innovative public safety communications platform will bring pre-emptive LTE (wireless 4G) service to public safety agencies and first responders, allowing them to get more information quickly and helping them to make faster and better decisions.

Problems

First responder networks have been delivered to public service agencies for years with promises of good service in emergencies, but have failed to deliver when the emergencies happened.

Solutions

This effort was lead by the public service agencies petitioning the US congress to find a solution after the 9-11 fiasco.
