In this webinar (click here to download), ICF International's Teri Johnson provides an overview of the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) State and Local Implementation Grant Program (SLIGP), including options for deployment, and associated challenges. This webinar also addresses critical topics such as:
- How to develop a FirstNet vision for an expanded public safety user community
- How to develop a strategy for states to integrate multiple broadband initiatives
- What states need to know now to get started
You will also learn what first responders—emergency medical service (EMS) personnel, fire fighters, and law enforcement officers—require of a 21st-century public safety communications network. Over the next 12 to 18 months, public safety and state officials will address significant issues to assess their needs and develop a FirstNet plan that will affect their states and local communities for several decades.
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced the availability of $121.5 million in grants through SLIGP. The grants will aid U.S. states and territories in deploying a wireless public safety broadband network operated by FirstNet.
