House Communications Subcommittee to Hold FirstNet Oversight Hearing Nov. 1
Thursday, October 26, 2017 | Comments

The House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology announced a Nov. 1 hearing at 10:15 a.m. titled “Oversight of FirstNet: State Perspectives.” A statement from the subcommittee said the hearing will examine the latest developments in the deployment of the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).

With the Dec. 28 deadline for governors, members will focus on the status of states opting in or out of the FirstNet Network.

“Nationwide interoperability for our first responders has been a long time coming, and it’s critical for their sake and the public’s that we get this right,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, chair of the subcommittee. “As next week’s hearing demonstrates, we are committed to monitoring FirstNet’s progress to ensure it brings modern communications capabilities to the brave men and women who keep us safe. It’s vital that we deliver on a system that our firefighters, police officers, EMTs and all those on the frontlines of public safety can rely on.”
