Program Description: Attend a regional, national or international public safety conference hosted by various national public safety organizations. Conferences offers professionals a chance to network across industry lines and earn continuing education credits.
Objectives of Program: First responders will have access to FirstNet's fast, reliable broadband network that allows for instant communication with public safety workers across the US. Currently, only 60 percent of Tennessee's 50,000 emergency responders actively use TACN's interoperable land mobile radio system. TACN FirstNet wants every public safety professional in Tennessee to not only adopt existing technologies but prepare for the future of advanced communications.
