Our networks performed well during Hurricane Michael and we continue to move quickly to keep our customers, FirstNet subscribers, and public safety agencies connected as they work to keep our communities safe.
The University of Oklahoma (OU), AT&T, and The Weather Channel have collaborated to equip several of OU’s Advanced Radar Research Center’s mobile research trucks with enhanced severe weather technology. These enhanced trucks have cameras capable of streaming live video and near real-time radar data during severe weather events.
FirstNet is making first responder communications simpler, safer, faster, and more effective.
AT&T has emerged as a leader in the transition of legacy 9-1-1 or traditional 9-1-1 to next generation 9-1-1. Learn more about how AT&T and public safety agencies are transforming how they handle and respond to 9-1-1 emergency calls.
AT&T has been selected by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) to build and manage the first broadband network dedicated to America’s police, firefighters, and emergency medical services (EMS). With FirstNet, AT&T will be able to offer first responders the technology they need to better communicate and collaborate across agencies and jurisdictions.
With all 50 U.S. states, five territories, and the District of Columbia opted into FirstNet, AT&T is given a unique opportunity to bridge public safety capabilities with the Internet of Things (IoT).
FirstNet brings public safety a dedicated communications platform to help them save lives and protect communities. And now AT&T has unveiled the new visual identity for FirstNet products and services.
Public safety officials already use Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs) to help warn residents of approaching danger and to alert the public to missing children. And now with advances in wireless technology, the existing WEA system can also be used to share life-saving information before, during, and after a crisis.
AT&T is helping to further modernize its public safety technology and move to a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) network. AT&T ESInet™ is a new solution that provides IP-based call routing services to 9-1-1 agencies. It will help local governments all over the country improve 9-1-1 reliability, enhance emergency responsiveness, and improve disaster recovery.
In 1968, calling for help meant using a conventional wireline phone to contact an operator or dialing a seven-digit local telephone number. Today, calling for police, fire, or medical assistance is both easier for customers and, from a technology perspective, much more complex.
AT&T is determined to help rebuild hurricane-damaged communities by sending emergency response teams to help rebuild communities and provide support.
AT&T has one of the industry’s largest and most advanced continuity and disaster response programs. With over $600 million invested in our Network Disaster Recovery (NDR) program, AT&T is prepared with a fleet of equipment ready for deployment, including hundreds of technology recovery and support trailers.
