The nationwide public safety broadband network will provide a dedicated wireless network that police officers, firefighters, and paramedics will be able to count on during emergencies and to meet their everyday missions. In addition, secondary users will be identified to utilize the network in order to support public safety. The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) has been tasked with building the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN) to provide seamless data interoperability across federal, tribal, state and local Public Safety Agencies. Once built out, the NPSBN will be run and maintained by FirstNet as a self-supporting, fee-based network.
The Arizona FirstNet team is responsible for identifying and educating all public safety agencies in the State about FirstNet and the NPSBN. In addition, the team is collecting specific information about how public safety is currently using wireless, what the coverage needs are and what infrastructure is possibly available to help build out the public safety broadband network - all this to assure that Arizona will get a workable public safety network.
