The Portsmouth (Ohio) Police and Fire Departments are connecting their first responders to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) communications network for public safety. The departments are using FirstNet on modems and department-issued smartphones.

“With FirstNet, our officers can respond more efficiently and effectively,” said Acting Portsmouth Police Chief Debra Brewer. “From crisis situations like a standoff with an armed suspect to supporting citizen safety during large events, we are now able to better serve the Portsmouth community.”

“FirstNet helps us stay connected to the critical information we need,” said Portsmouth Fire Chief William V. Raison.
