FirstNet To Team Up with Public Safety on Applications

Seattle Fire Department’s Chris Lombard says that first responders have demonstrated remarkable creativity by developing applications that meet the needs of first responders and to keep communities safe and secure.

“First responders today have created applications that meet a particular need within their community,” said Lombard, who also serves on the FirstNet Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC). “That’s a perfect example of the type of continuous innovation that we’re looking to enable.”

Once deployed, FirstNet will continue to be set apart from commercial wireless networks for the many unique features the network will offer to public safety. The FirstNet network will provide for an innovative device and application ecosystem to put lifesaving technology in the hands of all first responders. To meet the growing and changing technology needs of public safety, FirstNet has identified three key strategies to advance the application ecosystem.

1. Develop a rich set of applications for use by public safety;
2. Require applications to be driven by the needs of public safety; and,
3. Provide for the capabilities for the full life cycle of applications.

As applications transform the way public safety users perform their duties, a robust application ecosystem will be key to enabling the anywhere, anytime access to mission-critical data, information, and intelligence that first responders require and so richly deserve.
