Learn to use a public safety application

Primary tabs

Owning/Managing Organization: TACN FirstNet

Program Description: TACN FirstNet wants all responders to use their hand-held device to do more than place calls and share photos. Public safety professionals should understand how to access and utilize data to respond to calls quickly and efficiently. Use a public safety application to learn more about an emergency situation. For example, locate a crime scene using Google Maps or report theft using Rejjee TSP.

Objectives of Program: First responders will have access to FirstNet's fast, reliable broadband network that allows for instant communication with public safety workers across the US. Currently, only 60 percent of Tennessee's 50,000 emergency responders actively use TACN's interoperable land mobile radio system. TACN FirstNet wants every public safety professional in Tennessee to not only adopt existing technologies but prepare for the future of advanced communications.
