FirstNet Public Safety Advisory Committee Members Named

FirstNet has announced the structure and membership of FirstNet’s Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC), which will be comprised of 40 representatives of public safety organizations. In establishing the membership of its PSAC, FirstNet decided to leverage the current breadth and depth of knowledge within the SAFECOM program at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which is funded and administered by its Office of Emergency Communications, in order to avoid creating an entirely new and potentially duplicative public safety advisory body.
“I’m pleased that FirstNet will be partnering with DHS to enable the PSAC to commence its work advising the FirstNet Board,” said FirstNet Board Chairman Sam Ginn. “We welcome our PSAC’s ongoing input as we continue on this historic journey to build a nationwide public safety broadband network.”
