FirstNet Ready™

FirstNet® Two-Way Radios For Schools

What is FirstNet®?

The 9/11 terrorist attacks brought to the forefront the many communications challenges that first responders face during emergencies and disasters. Public safety organizations and associations advocated before Congress for a dedicated, reliable wireless network for first responders.

Today, in emergencies and at large events, heavy public use can lead to wireless communications networks becoming overloaded and inaccessible. In those instances, public safety users are treated the same as any other commercial or enterprise user, and communications can be limited due to congestion and capacity issues. With the FirstNet Network, public safety gets a dedicated “fast lane” that provides highly secure communications every day and for every emergency.

Diga-Talk+ For Extended Primary Users

FirstNet is also available to an extended community that could be called on to help support first responders – from the mitigation, remediation, overhaul, clean up, and restoration to the provisioning of other services required during the time of an emergency or its aftermath. These are known as extended primary users and can include essential government services, education, transportation, and utilities. We can help you determine your FirstNet eligibility.
