We are closing out the year just the way we started it: connecting people to opportunity. From connecting first responders and the U.S. Army, to connecting AT&T employees to career pipelines, or connecting community members to technology training, at its core, this is what all of us at AT&T do every day. I am so proud of what we have accomplished this year in Oregon, and as I look forward to 2018, I am excited for what is to come. But before we end the year, I want to wish all of you, your family and your friends a happy holiday season and a happy New Year!
President — AT&T Oregon
FirstNet momentum: 35 states and territories transform first responder communications with FirstNet
More than half of the country has moved to modernize communications for fire, police, emergency medical services (EMS) and other public safety personnel who bravely protect and serve their communities.
As of November 28, 35 states and territories have announced their decision to opt in to the FirstNet network — America’s only communications platform purpose-built for public safety. Both AT&T* and FirstNet committed significant resources to improve communications among first responders and members of the public safety community. With an opt-in decision, FirstNet, together with AT&T, bears the financial risk associated with the network in each state or territory and will require no additional financial resources from the state or territory to deploy or operate the network.
The FirstNet network is the only wireless, broadband network specially designed through consultation and feedback from public safety to ensure it meets their current and future technology needs. States have received their updated state plans.
For more information on a governor’s decision to opt in, go to firstnet.gov/the-governors-decision-media-kit. Opt-in updates can be tracked here: firstnet.gov. For information on subscribing to FirstNet, please go to FirstNet.com.
