FirstNet Authority releases Emergency Management Resource Guide in Spanish

The guide was developed by experts in FirstNet solutions and emergency management operations.

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) announced that its Emergency Management Resource Guide is now available in Spanish

The guide is a reference tool for emergency managers and first responders interested in learning about the products, services and capabilities available with FirstNet, the nationwide public safety broadband network.

This Spanish language version was created to expand the guide’s effectiveness for public safety officials who are bilingual or whose jurisdictions are predominantly Spanish speaking, the entity stated.

“The Emergency Management Resource Guide is a critical resource for first responders,” said FirstNet Authority Board member Alexandra Fernández-Navarro. “Making this available in Spanish will enable even more first responders to learn about FirstNet and how to integrate broadband into response operations.”

The guide was developed by experts in FirstNet solutions and emergency management operations based on feedback the entity received from the public safety community, it stated.

The guide covers topics related to coordinating response in the field or when an Emergency Operations Center has been activated. It provides a comprehensive overview of FirstNet’s deployables program, mapping and incident management tools, and mission critical services like push-to-talk over FirstNet and Z-axis location tracking.

The tools are designed to improve situational awareness and responder safety, enhance the effectiveness of incident management and reduce response times.

The guide also features step-by-step instructions on how FirstNet users can operationalize network capabilities and access solutions built to help public safety boost connectivity in hard-to-reach places.
