Regional FirstNet/AT&T State Plan Conferences

August 2, 2017

As recently reported in the news, Virginia became the first state to “opt in” to FirstNet, the national First Responder Network Authority created under federal law in 2012. The purpose of FirstNet is to build an “interoperable” public safety broadband network so that first responders will have a reliable and robust communications system to handle crisis situations.

These sessions will provide attendees with an explanation of FirstNet’s proposed Virginia State Plan, Virginia’s actions to study the Plan, and various technologies that will leverage Virginia’s future public safety dedicated broadband network. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions, which enables sponsors to collect feedback for review and analysis of FirstNet’s impact on the Commonwealth.
