Public safety agencies and other first responders continue to work around the clock to assess and mitigate the COVID-19 spread nationwide. And FirstNet, Built with AT&T, stands with you. As public safety’s partner, FirstNet has been there for you – through the coronavirus pandemic, providing critical connectivity at COVID-19 testing locations, medical facilities and emergency operations centers; and during natural disasters, including devastating wildfires in the west and an active 2020 hurricane season. Learn how emergency communications centers and other first responders are innovating – and working remotely in some cases – to keep themselves and their communities safe. Hear from Renee Gordon, Director of Emergency Communications for the City of Alexandria (VA), about how they are using FirstNet.
