Building a Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network: What Local Leaders Need To Know

  • Date: June 6, 2012
  • Location: Online
  • Category: Webinar Archive


In February, Congress and the Administration seized the opportunity to take a major step forward by replacing the current patchwork of voice-only first responder communications with a modern nationwide 4G wireless network that will ensure our first responders receive the information they need when disaster strikes. Now it is up to federal, state and local leaders to work together to build and operate the network.

This webinar will help local leaders understand their role in building this critical public safety communications network. Join Department of Commerce Deputy Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information Anna Gomez for an overview of the path to creating the network and the role of State and Local governments in making the network a reality. As local first responders will be the primary users of this network, municipalities must have a significant role in the planning of the network.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the National League of Cities, National Association of Counties, International City/County Managers Association, and the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors.
