Triple Play Communications is proud to be selected as an authorized FirstNet Dealer, serving the first responder community.
FirstNet is the nationwide public safety broadband network, services and solutions that are dedicated to First Responders and those that support them. It is more than a network, including advanced services, applications and purpose-built devices.
Due to communications challenges during the response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 9/11 Commission recommended the establishment of a single, interoperable network for public safety. With Congress established the First Responder Network Authority in 2012 and AT&T being awarded the contract to provide the capabilities for FirstNet to be built in 2017, FirstNet is fulfilling the concerns and desires of public safety, and is tailored specifically to meet their needs as they save lives and protect communities across the nation.
