Use social media as a public safety tool

Primary tabs

Owning/Managing Organization: TACN FirstNet

Program Description: Use a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Livestream, to share a photo or video of an event in your community or a planned response call.

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.

How to Participate: 
Download a social media application on your smart phone or tablet. Capture a photo or video and share it in a post. Give a brief description of the event, who attended and how you were involved.
Share a post in only a few minutes.
Share important data with fellow responders anytime at no cost.
Only one emergency responder is required to send data using their personal device.
