FirstNet in Vermont
FirstNet has the mission to ensure the building, deployment and operation of the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network with spectrum dedicated to public safety. FirstNet, or the First Responder Network Authority, was created by the U.S. Congress in 2012 in accordance with recommendations from the 9/11 commission. To guide and prepare for FirstNet in this state, the Vermont Public Safety Broadband Network Commission was established through Executive Order in 2013. The Vermont support team is located within the Department of Public Safety. Contact information for the Vermont team is located at the bottom of this page.
