Network Will Deliver a State-of-the Art, Wireless Broadband Network to the State's Public Safety Community; AT&T will Build, Operate and Maintain the Network at No Cost to the State.

November 9, 2016 - The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) announced the opening of the FirstNet Innovation and Test Lab at its technical headquarters in Boulder, Colo. FirstNet will bring advanced technologies that will help Washington D.C.'s first responders save lives and protect communities.

"During emergencies and disasters, every second counts, and ensuring our first responders have the tools they need during a crisis is vital to the safety and security of all New Yorkers", Governor Cuomo said. The network will extend to urban areas and along waterways, including the Great Lakes and the Long Island Sound.

"After careful analysis and consideration of the FirstNet proposal, it became clear that opting in was in the best interests of our state and our first responders", Malloy said in a statement.

AT&T will build the secure wireless broadband communications network at no cost to the state, according to Cuomo's office.

Connect first responder subscribers to the critical information they need in a highly secure manner when handling day-to-day operations, responding to emergencies and supporting large events in Dover, Wilmington and throughout the state.

John Emra, president of AT&T's CT operations, said the genesis of FirstNet came out of the lessons learned during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Enhance and expand network coverage across DE to cover areas underserved today, benefitting first responders and residents throughout the state's urban, coastal and rural areas.

Provide first responders with access to dedicated network assets that can be deployed for additional coverage and support when needed.

Driving infrastructure investments and create jobs across the state.

Then a year ago, MS gained access to a new $33 million Broadband Technology Opportunity Project to be used to beef up coordination among emergency responders statewide. This will create an ever-evolving set of life-saving tools for public safety, including public safety apps, specialized devices and Internet of Things technologies.

He says cell phone communication was not reliable in that disaster. Chartered in 2012, its mission is to ensure the building, deployment, and operation of the nationwide, broadband network that equips first responders to save lives and protect United States communities.

The First Responder Network Authority has been working with the states' Wireless Communication Commission to meet the state's communications needs, including expanding rural coverage beyond what is now available from commercial carriers, providing quick access to deployable network assets and offering services at competitive prices. Governor Cuomo's decision will bring expanded and enhanced communications capabilities to the great state of NY. It will also aid state and local entities during major events, such as the New York City Marathon and the New York State Fair.

"This is a special day for the fearless men and women that serve NY".

Joseph Klinger, acting director for the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, in a release from the governor said, "This decision is the culmination of a 4½-year effort leveraging input from first responders across all of Illinois".

Keenan Campbell, Director of Bureau County Emergency Management, also a member of the state advisory board, was on hand at the capitol last week when IL opted in to the program. "We're honored to support this mission".
