Owning/Managing Organization: TACN FirstNet

Program Description: Experiment with FirstNet communication technologies by sending a sample text, video, image, or GPS data in real-time to a responder outside of your jurisdiction. Feel free to send selfies, XYZ coordinates of your current location, or a video of a tour around your station.

Objectives of Program: First responders will have access to FirstNet's fast, reliable broadband network that allows for instant communication with public safety workers across the US. Currently, only 60 percent of Tennessee's 50,000 emergency responders actively use TACN's interoperable land mobile radio system. TACN FirstNet wants every public safety professional in Tennessee to not only adopt existing technologies but prepare for the future of advanced communications.
